Hi friends,
Early mornings have been cool but quiet and still, C. wren sings, Swainson's thrush peeps, and even a RB grosbeak gave a wiry rendition. Watering every morning, the red raspberries had 2 warblers waiting to get sprayed about 5 feet away. They appeared to be Blue-winged warblers. Preening and enjoying the water spray, they settled into the lilac bush to continue feather cleaning. No good pics but nice looks, never had this close before.
