I was walking around Orlando Wetlands and saw this bird. At first, I thought it was a Yellow-rumped Warbler. The more I looked, though, I began to doubt it due to the heavy bars and the amount of yellow around its head/cheek area. It was not until I got home and looked in my field guide did I know it was a Cape May Warbler. Just to be sure, I got it confirmed by a bird expert (who is also a good friend). I was so happy! A life bird for me and first one I have seen in Florida! Nikon D500, NIkkor 300mm with 1.4 tc.
