Miraculously, it did stick around, and I saw it this morning! So did everyone else. Unfortunately, it stayed high in the canopy, mostly showing us its very plain and boring belly against a catastrophically backlit white sky. After a couple hours chasing it through a small patch of woods, absolutely killing my neck, and filling a card with trash photos, I called it and went to get a 2nd cup of coffee. So, apologies for the lousy photo, but a Lifer warbler is nothing to be ashamed of.
Later in the afternoon I took a walk by Great Pond and got some good shots of good birds.
