Staying in Louisville for a couple days, and spent the morning at Cherokee park. Not as many birds as hoping for, but got these two warblers as lifers for confirmation. My IDs are in the spoiler below.

Thanks Limpkin. I actually saw a few of each of these species. They sure were tough to photograph, though. Finally got lucky with that last female Canada.

Thanks all. It looks like I found JimBob's #1 and Parula's #2 most wanted.

Both Canada and Yellow-throated were high on my list of wanted warblers. Nice to get two new warblers when I only saw four warblers for the day (one Magnolia and one American Redstart also seen).

I really want a Kentucky, but it looks like it won't be in Kentucky. Maybe I'll have to go to Canada to see the Kentucky.
