Ovenbird with Breakfast

I've seen, and especially heard, plenty of these guys at Newton Hills State Park before.  Getting close enough to get a good photo though?  Nope.  Not until this guy popped up out of nowhere and sat on the bottom of a sumac bush, and posed for me with a mouth full of breakfast for what I assume was a hungry brood waiting back at the nest.

Photo taken on June 5th, 2007 at Newton Hills State Park, in South Dakota.
