Black-throated Green Warbler (Dendoica virens)

I added a new bird to my Yard List yesterday; a Black-throated Green Warbler. I had only seen this species once before, and didn't have any good photos of it, so I was delighted to discover it flitting about among the leaves in our feeder area.

We have seen many different warblers in our yard recently during these late summer days. Its always such a pleasure to see a flash of 'warbler' yellow and detect quick darting movements among the leaves. The trick then is to try to get a picture before the bird disappears into the foilage again!
