Ran into Charles and Heather that morning and we saw Baltimore Orioles, Yellow Warblers, Least Flycatchers, American Goldfinches, and one Blackpoll Warbler. The Baltimore Orioles were not that cooperative and that single Blackpoll Warbler was feeding at a distant perch.

Here's a shot of the American Goldfinch on a fairly open perch. It was in the shade, and filled flash was used to get rid of the leaves' shadows on the bird.

I posted one more photo in the comment box below. Initially, I cropped it in a portrait orientation, and later I kind of changed my mind and cropped it loose and landscape. Let me know which one you like better. Thanks and enjoy!
