Today's Bird: Cape May Warbler

On this first day of May, it seems only fitting that today's bird be the Cape May Warbler.  The Cape May lives up in eastern Canada/northeastern United States during the summer.  It spends its winters in Central America.  Normally, it flies across the whole Gulf of Mexico, through Florida and up to it's summer home during April and May.  For whatever reason, this one got a touch lost--maybe blown off course?  Lucky for me, though, because it was tired, hungry and cooperative for a whole bunch of photos.  I took this on April 29, 2012 at the South Padre Island Convention Center grove, affectionately (and appropriately) known as the "Warbler Rest Stop."

Happy May, everyone!
