    What would bring this bird to North Texas?

    I went birding this morning at Casino Park near Lake Worth by Jacksboro Hwy. I assumed it was another Myrtle until I saw the picture. And I heard some high pitched whistles. It looks like a non-breeding male Cape May Warbler to me. Any one else have experience with this bird?

    It's definitely a Cape May. Very nice find, especially for the fall.

    They're a rare spring migrant through the area (maybe one or two records per year in most years) and pretty much absent during fall migration. Their typical routes run strongly toward the east coast and through the Florida peninsula.

    Wow - I would have been so excited I probably would have fainted had I seen a Cape May anywhere or anytime in any part of the North Texas region. I will make sure this goes reported for Tarrant County records, but please report to eBird if you have not already done so. Also, it would be great if you would report this to the Texas Rare Birds Committee. If you do not care to do so, let me know and I will report it to them on your behalf. To report to them, please send your pictures and notes of this sighting to both Greg Cook (quaker1308@yahoo.com) and Chris Runk (c_runk@sbcglobal.net).

    Jealous regards, Michael
