After spending much of the morning birding around Cape Spear and finding only an Indigo Bunting, I had settled in at home for the rest of the day. That was the case until Shawn Fitzpatrick reported he had seen a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher nearby.
Back to Flatrock: It was getting darker by the minute. As the gnatcatcher moved around, I was straining to follow it. While revving up my 20/20 vision, I managed to get a glimpse of olive green. What was that? I raised the camera and got one shot.
Then, I couldn't see it. I took several shots in the general direction and managed to capture it one more time. When I saw the white spot on the wing, I wasn't sure at the time if it was a reflection, rain or an actual mark on the bird. When I returned to the car and enlarged the picture, it was apparent, I had just seen my third Black-throated Warbler within the last ten days. This time, it was a female. It was well worth venturing out in the dark and rain to catch two great vagrants in one effort.
