Today at the TCAAP WVA, I saw a Common Yellow-throat do the Twist

I got up early and checked the radar this morning. It figures it would torrential rain for the first half of my stay-cation. I saw a gap in the red and yellow blobs on the radar so I headed out to the TCAAP Wildlife Viewing Area.

I saw this common yellow-throat once previously and finally got glass on it today. It sat on the wire for less than a minute. Here is a shot while it was shaking and twisting.

I spent some time this afternoon watching the round lake eagles feed.  All the while, I was fighting 20-30 mph winds.  Very difficult to keep everything steady.

At the TCAAP WVA this morning, I also saw a song sparrow and a swallow feeding frenzy.
