Windblown Tree Swallow

It was a cool and windy morning but I was determined to try and find some warblers. I headed over to Spring Valley Nature Center in Schaumburg, since I had some shopping to do there. (the price of gas means consolidate trips!)
There were the usual Yellow Rumps and Palms, but not much else. I heard a Black Throated Green, but did not see him.
This puffed up Tree Swallow is testament to the wind and windchill factor.
Hoping for warmer winds as I head up to Door County this weekend!
