May is Warbler Month on South Padre Island

  I can remember my dad telling me that May is Warbler Month as that is when the warblers migrate north  from their winter homes south of the border. In a normal May I might see 2 or 3 varieties migrating through but this year Bill and I were fortunate enough to be on South Padre Island, Texas a few days after a major "Fallout." I'm still looking at my pictures and identifying varieties, but here are the ones I have so far. I've tried hard to properly identify the birds, but I'm an amateur birder so please correct me if I've misidentified any.

Black-throated Green Warbler
