Yellow-throated Warbler is back today (rare bird in Maine)

Click on the image for a larger view.
Yup, our pretty bird has returned! Some birders from Lewis Hill Rd. happened to pull into our driveway just as I was setting up to photograph the warbler (as Drew had seen it at around 2pm.) Here is my best shot from this afternoon. I took the photo from the deck using my 70-200mm lens (at 200mm, with a 1.4x teleconverter on it.)  And, two more sets of birders just e-mailed to visit on New Year's Day! is fun to be so popular, and birders are some of my favorite people!

9 pm update: 5 sets of birders may be coming over tomorrow!
