Common Moorhen

I'm in Montreal on business and had a bit of time at the end of the day to visit Bois-de-l'Île-Bizard Nature Park. It is a short distance from where I am staying and was highly recommended by locals on the internet.
I didn't have much time and the sky was dark, but I did see some birds. The image above is of a Common Moorhen. Though common, its range does not extend to my stomping grounds, so it was a good sighting.
Another exciting sighting for me was a Nashville Warbler. I saw a small flock of them in some bushes on my way back to my car. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get very good pictures. Just barely good enough to make a positive identification.
