Palm Warbler migrating through Hamilton County in December
On December 10, Chris Cheatle located a Palm Warbler at Bayfront Park in Hamilton County, Ontario. I checked eBird for Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and this was the only December record of a Palm Warbler I could find. On December 13, I joined Len Manning and Lisa Marie in an attempt to re-find the Palm Warbler. It didn't take long as Len heard a chip and quickly located it. It was a nice find despite the fact that it provided a few all-to-brief looks (from a photography perspective) that were reasonably clean; the rest of the time it spent skulking about in the brush. Lighting conditions were not ideal; however, I did make the photo shown below during one of the brief moments the Palm Warbler was out in the open during my time there.
