Leamington - This little guy was as close as it looks, almost inside my minimum focus. I did not go to it. I positioned myself in a likely spot and waited half an hour for it to return. It did and exceeded my expectations. I'll be checking to see where it was banded and the bird's age and sex. Many saw it over a two day period. The previous day it was at Point Pelee National Park.

UPDATE: The bird hatched in 2012 at Whitefish Point, Michigan and returned to begin breeding there in 2013. It was likely on its way back to the same area.
