File this under something I've never seen in my life until now. I was photographing this Hooded Warbler in the rain when he landed on this branch really close by. I fired off a bunch of shots and then he quickly moved on. What I didn't see until review of the photos was that he had two small bubbles sitting on the top of his beak! How cool is that, I'm guessing he somehow blew the bubbles and they stuck on his beak. I also have shots of him singing in the same spot and the bubbles stayed intact while he sang. What resilient bubbles and it made for one very unique portrait of a soggy Hooded Warbler.
