Thanks everyone! It's been a blast having a lot of time off during migration. Today, I wanted to punish myself for not having my camera with me. I was part of a Big Day team and out pops a Connecticut Warbler, more or less out in the open (which is almost unheard of in migration for these guys). I ran back to the car, and when I returned, he was hopping up higher and higher into the tree, very difficult to relocate. Long story short, I didn't get any shots at all of this mystical bird.
I didn't have a camera because much of a Big Day is about speed in an area, and setting up/tearing down can eat up time and taking photos eats up time since all one should care about on a Big Day is total number of species seen/heard.
