October 1, 2013 - Lunchtime Rarity Chase to Edinburg Scenic Wetlands



I suspect this is an "elderly" Roseate Skimmer, but feedback is welcome!


Initial view of the suspected Bell's Vireo looked good...



...until it flew to a nearby tree and started looking more like a juvenile White-eyed Vireo; again, feedback welcome!


While trying to shoot the Tropical Parula (lower right), another suspicious vireo suddenly showed up in the viewfinder (at left)!



However, this one looks more like a Philadelphia Vireo than a Bell's!



Classic "documentation shots" of the Tropical Parula... (i.e., that's all they're good for...)


...and another surprise:  while shooting the Yellow Warbler (right), a Warbling Vireo had shown up in the picture (discovered while processing, of course)!
