The Pine Warbler is a new nesting warbler in Nova Scotia. This is the fifth consecutive year(or longer) that Pine Warblers have returned to their colony and they are returning in even larger numbers in each succeeding year.
I went to look for them two weeks ago and heard three singing on territory in the very tall pine trees. I returned last Saturday for another look and there were at least ten singing on territory. These warblers can be extremely difficult to photograph due to their habit of singing and nesting high up in the pine trees, and these pine trees are high. I only have one crummy photograph, severely cropped and enlarged, to show for my effort. When the park opens later this month I'll take my large telephoto in there and obtain better photos.
Here's some photos taken at this location in previous years.
Another denizen of this tall coniferous forest is the White-breasted Nuthatch.
