1
Yellow-throated Warbler

I was thrilled to see this guy in a pine and then he flew into the visitor center window where the Titmice were eating and he hit really hard. He fell to the deck where a few of us waited and he remained motionless for 5 minutes or so. He opened his beek and his toes straightened and I remained hopeful and unsure what to do. After another 5 minutes I went over and stroked his back and he looked at me and flew up to the back door ledge where he remained until I left.
