Black Throated Gray Warbler, foot injury. Unusual species here. I had observed one in the past, and this one kept hunting on the ground which didn't fit their usual high tree presence. Looked closely and saw the bum foot, and he had adapted nicely as a ground bird, snagging numerous worms with no problem. He could fly to the tree for safety, but had trouble staying on a limb.
