Yellow-throated Vireo

I came home early today to watch my daughter while my wife is out of town. It’s a nice day outside so I opened up the front door and turned on a fan to get some air blowing in my home. After I began working, I heard a bird I hadn’t heard in a while–it was a Yellow-throated Vireo! I ran outside with my camera and found the bird in a tree in my neighbors yard. I took a few pictures for about 5 minutes. Okay, now back to work.

  1. I like the expression of the bird in the second photo. They are all very good.
