Camera: Canon EOS-1D Mark IV
Exposure: 1/1000 sec, f/5.6, ISO 2000
Lens: Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L at 315mm
Date: October 30, 2011
Location: Estes Park (Larimer County, CO)

Description: This bird, likely a first-year male, was foraging among ground cover and in scrubby trees and shrubs beside a stream in downtown Estes Park. A Yellow-rumped (Audubon's) Warbler was nearby, but the two did not interact. It appeared healthy despite its atypical location (far west of its usual range) and the late season (the first snow had already fallen).
