A nice late-migration day at Sterling Forest. Breeding Golden-winged Warblers (one male banded, in linked photo) near parking circle and up the trail over the stream, as well as expected species. Cerulean Warbler (heard). Less expected was a persistently singing Mourning Warbler, heard in thickets along powerline trail.
Golden-wings generally not calling very actively, as breeding gets underway, except in bursts.
