Possible first county record. Basically identical to the eastern population of Willow Flycatcher and only reliably identified by voice. Sadly though this bird was completely silent but apparently there were some characteristics that pointed the bird to being an Alder. Leaving the ID as Alder for now but I will change it if the record isn't accepted.

Singing breeding plumage male. At 8 AM, while working at the zoo, I heard an unfamiliar loud song and investigated. The Merlin Bird ID app identified the song as a Bay-breasted Warbler, and I saw it soon after. I didn't have my telephoto lens today, so the photo was poor. Other birders arrived as I was leaving, and I was able to point out the bird to them. They managed to take some quality photos, confirming it as a Bay-breasted Warbler.
