This is a quick turnaround from yesterdays post of the same bird. I'll be away for Father's Day weekend with my son and family in Boston.

Although the Blackpoll Warbler is found in spruce tree habitat on it's nesting grounds,  in this case he landed in one of the small deciduous trees that grew among the pines. I'm including this one as it clearly shows the whole bird, including it's yellow/orange legs.  To my eye the Blackpoll looks like a combination of a Black and White Warbler and a Black Capped Chickadee. The few times I've encountered a Blackpoll, for a moment I'm not sure what I'm looking at due to the similarities but the feet are an instant ID.

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there.

An almost reflective pose you caught this time, Warren. Another beauty in your collection.

Enjoy your weekend!

Nice view of the Blackpoll, Warren. I like it's rather pensive look and the nice surrounds. I like your little stories too. We get them very occasionally here, mostly in migration. I agree with your description!
