A Late Bay-breasted Warbler

This afternoon a large flock of birds moved through my backyard.  It was mostly comprised of Yellow-rumped Warblers, White-throated Sparrows, Cedar Waxwings, and Dark-eyed Juncos.  I was very surprised to put up my bins and see a Bay-breasted Warbler.  It had been 10 days since I had last seen one and figured next spring would be the next time I see one.  

The Bay-breasted Warbler from today.

A Red-winged Blackbird from a couple days ago.  They are gathering in
flocks here in Indiana now!
