Manitouwadge, ON, Canada
I discovered this bird on the ground next to my garage. At first, I thought it was a Goldfinch (from the back) window strike casualty but when I picked the bird up, it blinked at me with the most beautiful bird eyes! I quickly realized I had never seen anything like this bird. It resembled a Warbler but had the beak and facial features of a Vireo. It appeared healthy but very cold so I warmed it in my hands before placing it in our wood shed where it could find bugs .. but it wouldn’t stay there. It flew up onto the roof of our nearby garden shed (photo with snowy beak), then up onto the phone line where it sat for about 15 minutes. From there, it flew into our stand of red pine trees and that’s where I lost site of it and have not seen it again.
