Warblers eluding me

The weather has been so nice that I'm not having much luck spotting southward-migrating warblers.   They just seem to keep flying past me.   It seems however that there is always a Great Blue Heron to catch my eye.   Or maybe because I'm just a a couple months from my 70th birthday, I'm getting lazy and I'm defaulting to the big birds.   I saw several Great Blues today plus a Black-crowned Night Heron.   On my heron travels, I passed through Tottenham and spied South Simcoe's Steam Engine No. 136 (see below) getting ready to transport a bunch of eager riders on an outing.   I love to watch steam trains as much as I love to watch Great Blue Herons, so my afternoon jaunt was quite pleasant.   Maybe the warblers will cooperate tomorrow, especially after a wet, cold front passes through.

I don't think you have the right to feel disappointed with a heron like that...
