Looking through leaves

The male black and white warbler.  Bold colors
The gentle veery
      This was a total surprise, a "what's that" bird. Looks like a sparrow, but walks differently and is smaller. A more experienced birder identified this sweet bird, a Lincoln sparrow, first time for me. Pretty and sweet.                           
Then into the leaves came the male chestnut-sided warbler. Love this bird.  First time I ever saw this bird I thought it was the prettiest "sparrow" I had ever seen. That was nine years ago. Live and learn.
