There were four today, but this one was exceptional. I couldn’t help but admire the colors and patterns and thought that this is probably a bird that is often overlooked when birders are seeking out the more dramatically patterned warblers – but then again, few birders actually get to see them up close and personal, like this.
Of course, everyone loves a bluebird, and I’ve got a soft spot for them too, because a bluebird was on the cover of my book. But I just don’t know – I think I’m in more of a vireo mood today. Gotta love those spectacles!
