Thursday was the first day in a long time that I have seen a lot of small birds flying all around the woods. Several different species in one area was enough to keep my feet planted for more than an hour enjoying the show. One-by-one, I would spot and recognize each species...and then, I caught a brief glimpse of this bird. I didn't know what it was. My senses perked up; my brain began to flip through the images in my memory. Methodically, I began eliminating one species after another. What was this? Typical of so many "different" little birds, this one was elusive. It disappeared.
