TX - Swainson's Warblers - 04/20
April 20th gave our group not one but two Swainson's Warblers! The first was a singing bird seen well but fleetingly at Jasper in the morning, followed by the late evening discovery of a migrant at Sabine Woods during a tremendous fall-out which included many tens of Wood and Swainson's Thrushes.
This species holds a special fascination for me having heard them so many more times than I've actually seen them. To be presented with two sightings in one day was way beyond my expectation.
