Golden-winged Warbler, Litzenberg

Early Sunday Morning Sue Baxter and I decided to dodge some rain and check out Litzenberg.
While the sheer numbers of species seems a down for early May (52), we did get a few good birds.
Easily the best was a singing male Golden-winged Warbler.  Sue an I both got several decent to good views, plus the bird called about a half-dozen times in ten minutes.
This warbler was located in the far NW corner of the north side of Litzenberg Memorial Woods.  Follow the main trails directly back all the way to the wooden service-access gate just off the back county road.  The warbler was about 25 feet off the trail to the left, and about 15 feet up in an oak.
