Mystery solved! Cape May warbler (Setophaga tigrina) goes on the San Antonio list

The following two pitiful photos should suffice, despite their gross inadequacies, to document the Cape May warbler(s) that are so zestfully defending a bottle-brush tree in the San Antonio church yard.  This morning I was close enough to almost touch one of them, and I am much confirmed in my suspicions that they are indeed Cape Mays.  I heard no vocalisations, by the way, from this “very rare migrant” (Birds of Costa Rica, Garrigues & Dean).  Note the new Latin name Setophaga tigrina, instead of Dendroica tigrina.

My first photo success!

And here's a good view of breast and throat.

If anyone has any doubts, speak now or forever hold your peace!
