The Witchety-Witchety Bird

We enjoyed hearing and then finding and photographing a male Witchety-Whitchety bird this morning during a walk on the Lagoon Loop Trail. It's real name is Common Yellowthroat which seems unfitting for such a beautiful bird that is far from common in both sight and song.  We prefer the discription of its song, "witchety-witchety", as the name we like to use.  It's one of our favorite warblers in part because its song is easy to recognize, which is very helpful because like most warblers it normally prefers to stay out of sight.
