It seems I've fallen way behind in sharing some of my images. While I have a load of shots of birds seen before these, I decided to share some of the most recent. This Palm Warbler seen alongside Highway 10 caught me off guard. It only stayed for about 15 seconds and was gone again. Another appeared closer to Cape Broyle, but I didn't get out of the car quick enough.
It was also quite tired. For a few moments, I tried to turn this bird into something more exotic, but all of that faded as the two birds lifted. One look at the wing pattern was enough to confirm that there were TWO Willets resting in Renews.
While I enjoy going to see birds previously sighted, the biggest thrill comes when the unexpected appears right in front of you. The second Willet provided that rush often felt by birders when surprised in the moment.
