Swainson's Warbler (Limnothlypis swainsonii) - 06May2017 and 07May2017 & 18Apr2018

A Southeastern breeder with the song of a true troubadour.  From the Cornell website: "One of the most secretive and least observed of all North American birds, the Swainson's Warbler is a skulking bird of the southern canebrakes and rhododendron thickets. If it weren't for its loud, ringing song, the presence of the species in many areas would go completely undetected."

Here is one from my most reliable spot of Howell Woods in Johnston County, NC in 2018.

In 2017 Sam C found one in the far northern region of New Hanover county which is nice for a home county tick.
