Today's Bird: The Blackburnian Warbler

Today's bird is one of my recent favorites: the Blackburnian Warbler.  Around here, they're a migrant, coming up from Central America to head towards the northeast.  Like lots of other warblers, they're not always this striking--my first Blackburnian was actually not black and orange like this but was more of a drab gray and yellow.  This guy, in his full splendor was stopping over at South Padre's Warbler Rest Stop on May 19, 2012.
