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.
