Common Yellowthroat

These are a few more photos from my wonderful walk last Sunday morning.  It took me some time to identify the type of bird when I got home; going back and forth from the computer screen to my bird book and bird websites to figure it out.

A common yellowthroat (bottom right)  in the long grasses that line the river.  I am not certain what type of bird is top left. 1/250 sec, f5.6, ISO 100

I included this not because it is a great picture (clearly, it isn't).  When reviewing it though, it reminded me a bit of those old Where's Waldo books.  There is a yellowthroat in this picture... somewhere :)

I knew it wasn't a goldfinch I was seeing when flashes of brilliant yellow appeared in the trees and grasses while I was out walking (although I have seen goldfinches along other stretches of the dike before).  It took a bit of searching through my bird book in order to figure out what to call this beauty. 1/400 sec, f6.3, ISO 400
