Oh Sweet Canada!

I had a great day today leading the High Country Birding Trip at The New River Birding Festival in Fayette County, West Virginia.

Another big day tomorrow, so just enough time and energy left to share three images.

This was a very cooperative Canada warbler that sang and fed and preened for us along Glade Creek Road. It was my best Canada warbler watching ever. You should have been here.

Showing the black necklace just like in the field guide.

Singing: Chip-chupety, wee-ditchety.

And back into the rhododendron thicket he goes. Sad to see something so beautiful fly away.

I love Canada warblers--that necklace is so distinctive. Even a beginner like me can remember that one.
