Congrats! A very quality lifer to get!

Thanks.  I've got to go back and try to get some good photos.  That was 40+ feet up in a very tall sycamore -- and she was not being very cooperative.

Nice! I really hope you get another lifer before Sunday! On the topic of TEWA, we've had an crazy fall for those here in Sacramento! There's been seven between Sac and Yolo, and I found two of them!

As documented in the 'Help with an ID' forum, I picked two warblers on Friday - Wilson's and Magnolia.

It was forecast to be the first nice autumnal day in central SC, opening with a low in the mid-50F, so I burned a day of vacation from work.  Even at 2:00 it was still only 70F or so when I set out for the local soccer fields.  The fields are nothing but there's a good mix of environments around them.
