Beautiful Bay-breasted Warbler on South Padre Island

Over the week-end I enjoyed watching a number of migrating birds including this stunning male Bay-breasted Warbler that stopped over on South Padre Island to refuel and rest for the remainder of their trip. I caught the bird in great light to get the pic just above so click on it to see the beautiful plumage up close.
There is a wonderful water feature in the gardens adjacent to the Convention Center and I photographed this warbler and others when it came in to drink and bath.
These Bay-breasted Warblers have a long way to go as they breed mostly in Canada and even further north. SeEtta
