My best ever Mangrove Warbler photo!! (Setophaga petechia)

I spent weeks trying to try these little guys down, and once I finally find them, they are all over the place!
Mangroves near tidal area
La Paz, Mexico
Date taken
Scientific name
Setophaga petechia
Equipment used
D750, 400mm
You should be darn proud as this is a beautiful image Tom.

But I have a question. Your scientific name brings me to Yellow Warbler as does Google. So I'm guessing this is a sub-species? You can answer me here and I'll check back. ;)
A real eye-popper Tom. They are fabulous little warblers but like other warblers they never seem to sit still. Congratulations on this beauty!!!!
Good job Thomas; good picture of a neat bird. Where are you going to on the bay. I assume the far side of the bay from your marina? Is there good road access to that area?
