Opening the car door in the parking lot of the trailhead on Sunday, we hear an unusual song coming from the treetops overhead.

Can it be? No…really? It is! It’s a blue-winged warbler!

If you’re a twitchy birder like me, this is a pretty amazing sight (this happens to be only the second record ever for Ottawa – he’s a bit out of his range).

But even if you’re not, you gotta admit, he sure is beautiful.

(Sorry about the optics – I only had my 70-200mm lens, and he was way, way up).
