I had a small tragedy a few days ago. I found a small bird dead on my porch, and it was one I hadn't seen before. Searching on the net I found myself returning again and again to photos of Connecticut Warblers, but I haven't found anything to suggest I should be seeing one in Sooke on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, just west of Victoria.

I took a photo and I'm wondering if you can help me identify this little guy.
