Annual Victorins sighting

Description:

Although there are always Victorin's Warblers around, they are always invisible. How birds can move so quickly and unobtrusively through the undergrowth amazes me. However, once a year they put on a "let's surprise Sally!!" event which catches me off-guard every time. Several birds will appear in full view, no more than 3 metres away, singing, cavorting and laughing at my surprise. This one was even close enough for a pic from my little point 'n shoot
