Townsend's Warbler

Foraging by itself in the large oak some of us call the Tennessee tree, near the Chimney Swift tower.
Very well marked bird, bright yellow chest and sides with generous black streaking along sides, complete black auricular patch. Black stippled in throat, but present in upper chest, presenting as a broad necklace. This along with Black-Throated Gray used to be considered a once in 5 or more year occurrence, but have been roughly an every other year thing for the last several years.
