I saw a Golden-winged Warbler much to my delight.  I donot know if it is the
same bird as last week, it was in the same location, McKinnon's Way.
The cardinals were loudly chasing each other, there were Blue-gray Gnatcatchers
flitting about, a Yellow-throated Warbler was chirping loudly when I briefly
saw the Golden-Winged Warbler, enough to determine what it was but not enough
to satisfy.  I waited and quietly pished and after a while he perched on a vine
to appraise the sitiation, I really enjoyed admiring such a handsome bird.
A lifer for me as I did not see the bird last week.
