Munising, Michigan — Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

I spotted a Mourning Warbler foraging in thick bushes right along the road not far from the shore of Lake Superior.  I heard it chipping and saw it briefly before it hopped down into the bush out of sight.  It reappeared when I pished, and I got a good long look as it fluttered around.
