All the earth shall sing unto thee...Psalm 66: 4

This bird comes here in the spring and in the autumn ..The White-throat is nicknamed the Canada Bird for the song written as "O Sweet Canada." primarily because of what its sounds like when it sweetly sings its songs...

I was glad it gave me direct eye contact so that you can see the yellow markings above its eyes..
It was waiting on the branch for a squirrel to finish eating to take its turn on the feeder.

Best Viewed in light-box! Thank you!!!
