We had two or three earlier in the week.
They don't come into our area often however this seems to be one of the times.
Taken through the dirty double pained wonderful wildlife window in poor light.

We were able to beach the boat so the could access the areas they were studying.
It usually isn't this calm on the south beach at Rondeau so it was a treat for me to be able to leave the boat and watch the researchers. Normally I stay with the boat the entire time.

This is the typical view you gt of a warbler as it flits around in a bush.
Usually the are at the tops of trees and even harder to see.
Having a water feature in your yard will bring them down and hopefully you can get a better look.
This is a fall plumage yellow rumped warbler.
A yellow rumped warbler caught in the open.
Whonder why they call it a yellow rumped warbler?
