Warblers in Oakwood

For over forty years we have anticipated  the Warbler migration in the spring.  I eagerly wake and check the trees for these little beauties.  The  best birding years are when they come before the leaves are fully opened. It makes spotting them easier. Now that I have a camera I find it very difficult to take a photo when they are flitting in our leafed trees. Some are treetop feeders, others on trunks still others lower to the ground. But hopefully they will return next year.  The first series of warbles are Yellow Warbler.  If we have miss identified any, please comment. These were taken 5/17-5/20.
