An embarrassment of riches.

We don't often see ovenbirds and then usually just glimpses.
Today was different, we had one visit and perch in the open.

I have so many good photos I didn't know which one to pick.
This is one of the best ovenbird photos I took.

Seiurus aurocapilla
On its breeding ground, the Ovenbird divides up the forest environment with the other warblers of the forest floor. The Ovenbird uses the uplands and moderately sloped areas, the Worm-eating Warbler uses the steep slopes, and the Louisiana Waterthrush and the Kentucky Warbler use the low-lying areas.
