Palm Warbler, Western
I also learned that the Palm Warbler wags its tail frequently and is usually found on the ground. This one was flitting about at around eye level, and I didn't have time to notice if it was tail-wagging or not.
Once I learned what the bird was I really wanted to see it again. However, the long up-hill hike into the area was a deterrent. I left with a sense of satisfying amazement of having seen yet another new and unexpected bird. Hats off to Catherine for locating it. This has turned out to be a very special year of birding for me and I will be compiling a year-end report in the days to come.
