I've been experimenting with a rock pile bird bath and a recirculating bubbler. This morning it got active for a short time. First 3 chickadees came in for a drink and a quick bath. Next thing we knew, there were two Nashville's, a Magnolia and two Black-throated Green Warblers taking a look. One of the Nashville's tried to surf the bubbler but was too skittish to make much progress. Then we saw 3 Chestnut-sided Warblers, all of which eventually took a bath- briefly two at once!
A short time later they cleared out and I circled the yard without a sign of migrant activity. Yesterday I heard Ruby-crowned Kinglet and Red-breasted Nuthatch.
