That is why I will continued to walk the familiar trails in search of an unfamiliar bird.
Afterword: With Hurricane Gonzalo just offshore from the SE Avalon, I know there are birders already sitting in strategic locations hoping to catch sight of some rare seabirds in the midst of the downpour and high winds. That sounds a little strange for those who enjoy sitting out a storm in the comfort of their home, but what is really strange is the number of runners and volunteers who are now right in the middle of a Cat 1 hurricane running from Cape Spear to Cabot Tower. Oh, how our passions impact our common sense!

This bird is running a little behind schedule, as it should soon be well on its way to the SE United States and/or the Caribbean Isles by now.

Also playing hard-to-get this morning was this Yellow-breasted Chat that was within inches of us. It hunkered down in the brush and managed to hide its flashing yellow breast. Only when it flew, did I get a look at it. Quite a busy morning at Cape Spear this morning. Dave Brown also spotted an Indigo Bunting as it flew into our area. Sitting and waiting around out there can produce all sorts of good things.
