May 14, 2011 Kentucky Warbler excitement @ Pelee!

Another day, another rare warbler, that's birding Pelee during peak spring migration. Today a male Kentucky Warbler was discovered near the tip Tram stop. The bird was singing and very cooperative for a while giving many birders there "lifer" Kentucky Warbler. The bird was sometimes secretive and this skulker had many birders patients almost broken before sitting up in the clear and singing its churry, churry, churry musical notes somewhat similar to a Carolina Wren.

First view of the Kentucky Warbler.

As it walk around on the ground and fallen trees is occasionally gave us great short views.

Finally it was in open and sang a few times before disappearing into the vegetation again.
