My Cornell bird app tells me that this is a Greater Whitethroat. A bird I have never even heard of before let alone seen! These were taken during my walk this afternoon.

A Three-toed woodpecker female.
This bird is one of the quiet and unnoticeable.
Seeing them always makes me happy.

It's really nice to see these colours after the grey winter.

Nice! These guys are very elusive when they come back on shore here in Texas during migration.

Thanks, Bill! They're darn elusive here as well. It took about 5 yrs before I could photograph one.

Both of these warbler shots are really great, Matthew. The blackburnian warblers certainly is a gorgeous bird.
