I think the Cape May Warbler is a lifer for me.  At least it’s the first time I’ve ever photographed it.  This guy was foraging in a bottlebrush bush.

I actually photographed the Common Yellowthroat somewhere else, but I did see one on Jekyll Island.  I still think of them by their old name – Maryland Yellowthroat

The female Painted Bunting had been seen in the campground in January, but now she was in the Arboretum.  I don’t know if there is a mate.

I spent most of my time on the beach, as you may have noticed from my previous Jekyll Island posts.  OK, now I must pack for my move to Colorado!
