Bell's Vireo, US National Arboretum, Washington DC
An early morning stomp through the tangles and weeds at Kenilworth Park had failed to produce anything interesting. So I was not expecting to find myself scurrying across to the US National Arboretum for Hugh's big find of the autumn (so far!)... Bell's Vireo. If its skulking behaviour wasn't challenging enough, the chain link fence proved particularly tricky for photos. Despite these obstacles, all the key identification features were captured.
