Today's Bird: Black Throated Gray Warbler

We've made it to Friday!  I'm excited (tomorrow's birding day!) and so is this little guy!  Today's bird is the Black-Throated Gray Warbler.  He's pretty tiny (only about 5 inches long), but he makes some pretty crazy long trips from Mexico to the Pacific-Northwest and back.  For us in the Rio Grande Valley, he's an occasional migrant.  More of them fly through Arizona and New Mexico, but every year, we have a few come through.  I photographed this guy, leaping around a tree looking for bug-snacks on February 11, 2012 at Estero Llano Grande State Park in Weslaco.
