Today from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., I watched birds while relaxing on the
porch. I couldn't see ground level but we have a tangle of shrubbery in the
corner of the lot near the porch. A Wilson's Warbler kept me busy watching
his activities-flycatching and jumping hoops most of the time I watched.
There were eventually at least three Wilson's in that area, along with
Nashville's, Common Yellowthroat, Yellow, an American Redstart and a
surprising Mourning Warbler that put in a brief appearance. In the trees in
the background there were Magnolias and Chestnut-sided Warblers.

Earlier today I saw a Canada Warbler and a Golden-winged in our serviceberry

The Wilson's Warbler spent most of its time picking insects from a young
hackberry tree growing in the middle of the tangle.
