Observation details

Finally seen after much effort. Ironically, we may have arrived at the bird's territory too early when it was still very cold and there was little bird activity. When we revisited the spot later in the morning (ca. 8:30) we quickly found the warbler flying conspicuously between low bushes. Counting yesterday, it took us nearly 5 hours of walking around before we finally found this species. Great bird!
