When I first spotted this beautiful little warbler, I though it was a new sighting; however, after checking my records I had seen it previously. It was truly a joy to get to watch this little bird for a few seconds.

 

Finally, a new bird – Yellow-throated Warbler. Number 359!

Very hard to photograph, because it was flitting around in the dense trees, zipping in and out of the moss.

I enhanced the last two photos of the Yellow-throated; I tried to improve the  photos highlighting the bird better. Of course the best shot is of its back-side!

 It is always fun to take a walk, because you never know what you might see!
