Back in early December I started to notice this curious, friendly little bird that would flutter over to land on my car side view mirror and stare at its reflection. Day after day I would pull into the driveway and there it would be, excited to be reunited with the car mirror!
Well, it's been over two months now and it is no longer enchanted with the mirror, but I do still see it at least a few times a week hunting for insects in my yard. I even find myself looking for it when I go outside and when a few days go by with no sight of it I start to worry that maybe it has found another home! I will surely miss it when it finally goes.
I believe (but could be wrong as I am not a bird expert) that it is a Philadelphia Vireo, which is a small songbird native to Canada that migrates during winter to Central America and Mexico. Apparently, this fellow made a wrong turn at some point and has decided to stay in Florida instead!

Thanks for visiting!
