Rare Birdsighting in Western WA: Yellow-throated Warbler

A Yellow-throated Warbler was found on the Kessler side of Lake Sacajawea in Longview.  It is definitely a county first, a Western Washington first, and only the 3rd recorded sighting in the state, the first two on the east side of the Cascades. 

Yahoo! So it will be recorded in the record books.  (not sure you will be able to find the bird in any of your western bird books, but you can try).
It is these rare sightings that pump the adrenaline once in a while, but it is the constant beauty of all the birds we see that bolsters our spirits.

Happy birding, to all.
