Little Lost Parula

My sole exposure to this apparently great birding day (confined as I am to work) was this Northern Parula, found by someone in Margate early this morning clinging to their window screen. The folks texted me the photo, and thought it might be an escaped pet store finch, they had never seen such a lovely bird. As I explained, it was a nocturnal migrant that was blown offshore by the northwest wind, and had struggled back to land.
