Black-throated Green Warbler in Salem, NY

Came home from a Hudson Crossing hike with my sister today to find a single Black-throated Green Warbler singing in my back yard.  Had great looks and was able to easily identify this bird as an adult male of the species. This is the earliest I've ever seen this species in my yard in Spring.  I was shocked to find this warbler before my usual Yellow-rumped or Palm Warblers.  Spring seems to have sprung early this year. What a beautiful day!
