A Swainson's Warbler at the Bayou

Look at that long bill!
The banding and birding here along the Gulf Coast was slow over the weekend.  There were not many birds caught and few were around in general.  Luckily, there was one major highlight over the weekend . . . catching a Swainson’s Warbler.  I have very little experience with this species having seen them on only one other occasion.  Having one in the hand was an amazing experience!
