Walking around the yard, I spotted a bird feeding a chick inside of a large rhodie. When the adult left, I looked inside the bush and right into the face of the chick. I grabbed my binos and parked on the grass a ways away to wait for the mom to come back, which looks like a Black-throated Gray Warbler. I was unable to see a yellow spot near the eye and admittedly I am not very knowledgable about less common backyard birds but have examined my bird books and it seems a match. The almost constant call while back and forth with food was a chit chit chit similar to a Junco. Having never noticed this bird in the yard before, is it fairly common in the area?
