We did birding around VT and NH yesterday, having some interesting 
insects as well as birds.  Photos below, but first an ID question.

I've flagged this bird:

as a common yellowthroat, but nothing in the literature I've seen 
indicates a possibility for a Spring CY with a black beak.  Is that 
just a mistake in the literature or is it possible I've got something 
more unusual?  I'm still going with common yellowthroat, but the 
black beak confuses me.

Okay, photos from yesterday:

I went to brush something off my face and realized it was this 
spider.  After it landed on the ground, I tried taking a few pictures 
in the hopes I could get someone to help me ID it. [Mon, May 25, 2009]

had to get a few photos [Mon, May 25, 2009]

House finch fledgling.  It just stood there squeaking waiting for 
someone to come feed it until it figured out how to use the feeder 
itself. [Mon, May 25, 2009]
