Good American at Sele: Common Yellowthroat!!

 Yesterday I missed the Common Yellowthroat, I was only few seconds too late. The bird was found by Eirik Adolfsen in the beautiful (rarity) garden in Sele on Øygarden. On Friday it was only seen by three lucky birders (including Eirik). Today (on Saturday) we were with some 40 birders and had to wait until 11:15 before the bird was found back. It had presumably been in the garden all the time. It was very skulky. I saw it two times in my binoculars very briefly, but recognizable with its yellow throat.

Further there a Siberian Chiffchaff, three Common Chiffchaffs, a few Goldfinches, at least three Blackcaps and some crossbills flying by...
