Unfortunately, I don't have any Winter images at the moment-( today being somewhat cool at -19 degrees for photography), so I'm including an image from May. This was taken during the Spring Migration, where this Cape May was foraging in a willow tree.
This was the first one I had ever seen over the years, but is now somewhat of a favourite of mine, as the colours are quite attractive.

Thanks to everyone for viewing

Atteactive colours to be sure, and works well in the habitat.

A beautiful frame, Paul! Great pose, busy searching for bugs, excellent detail, lovely setting - and glorious colour palette. What a treat for the eyes!

+1. The male Cape May really is one of the most beautiful warblers.  Well done getting him in a natural setting in search of a meal.
