Observation details

Adult male, no dark breast band, dark mask. High quality digital image reveals a partial upper eye arc over both eyes. Bird was discovered by song and was very vocal throughout our stroll through the campground area. It stayed within a fairly limited area near the entrance and sang typical parula song every 5-10 seconds. Observed for 10 minutes or more during two episodes. It eventually came down low to within 10-12 feet for good photos. I will add a couple of images later. Randy Pinkston got many high quality images which he will add to his list.
