This year's migration has been outstanding for me thus far. I've added almost 30 new birds to my life list and begun the long process of differentiating between shorebirds. This is one of the many new birds I've added in the last couple weeks: the Prothonotary Warbler. He lives in the eastern half of the United States during the late spring, summer and early fall and spends his winters along the coast of Mexico. This particular bird was so tired from his flight that he didn't mind a little photo shoot. I took this photo at the South Padre Island Convention Center "Warbler Rest Stop" on April 21, 2012.
