The parula was a 2nd year female (lacked a necklace).  She was foraging among the last remaining Wilson's Warblers by the county ford. The Semipalmated was loafing on the delta, which is wetter than I have seen it in three years. It was pretty tired looking and very unwilling to fly, despite the fact I was about 5m away when I spotted it.
