Alas, the weather was right, the birds just hadn't gotten the message. However, as we parked the car at Smith's Woods, and stepped out, a beautiful Western Tanager greeted us overhead, a first" for both Paul and I. Then a few steps further, Mr. John Howell, of Beaumont, informed us the Cape May Warbler had just been seen. Needless to say, we haunted the spot for some time, but it was several hours later before we finally saw it. Dr. Ralph Clearman of Bartlett had then been observing it for some time, and a group of us joined him for a lively discussion of its identity. It was a. male, not yet in full spring plumage, and we felt very elated to have two "firsts" on an otherwise duli day of;birding.
