Thanks for the great cub scout workshop today! We had a great time and learned a lot. Your knowledge is amazing! We'll be back!

Great shots. That male Yellow-rumped Warbler is interesting - it is a hybrid (or, more appropriately, an "intergrade") between the western Audubon's subspecies and the eastern Myrtle subspecies.
