Common Yellowthroat

As I approached this tiny tree I could hear a Common Yellowthroat singing from within. Such a timid little warbler, I figured there was no chance, but I had to try. There he is! I could see him through a small opening in the leaves; his back was to me and he had no idea I was there. I fired a shot to get his attention and one shot when he looked over his shoulder at me. Then he was gone. This is a pretty typical interaction for me with a Common Yellowthroat, but this time I got the shot.
