It was a big surprise that a streaky-breasted youngster at the Meadow's east edge turned out to be a fledgling Yellow-rumped Warbler! An adult male was close by. Pretty neat confirming breeding there. Dave Wendelken and I were birding and hunting butterflies; we agreed the warbler was "critter of the day!" The birds were in a pine along with a fledgling Pine Warbler.
