Starting the Weekend Right

Is there a better way to start a weekend than by exploring a new stretch of creek bed?

Not much, when you get a good view of a Yellow Rumped Warbler - aka Butterbutt. This was a much better look than I had on my previous sighting, and the first time that I had located one myself rather than having it spotted by someone else in a group. I was impressed by the brilliant yellow stripe in the middle of the plain grey head.

Even more yellow was to be had with this American Goldfinch.

Not to be outdone, the Black-Capped Chickadees made up for their lack of color with their activity and song.
No new species, but a lot of improved looks and just a great evening to be out.
