Thank you to everyone who weighed in on our apparently oddball Common
Yellowthroat. I'm glad we could pose enough of a curveball that we
were able to hear a diversity of opinions, and forced me to think hard
about what we were hearing -- especially as others have had the same
train of thought as us after similar encounters in the field.
Definitely a learning experience! Here's hoping it's the real deal
next time around.
