RLG sounds good to me!! And I agree that Warblers do not really warble but House wrens do! So that being said, I have a nesting House "Warbler" pair and yesterday morning in my mulberry tree I had 2 Yellow RLG's and a Palm RLG. 😀

I walked part of the South Manhattan Linear Trail this morning, paralleling Wildcat Creek. Although I added Eastern Wood-pewee and Cape May Warbler as new for 2018, it was predominantly sights and sounds of summer. Which has been the case for at least 2 weeks for me.

I know I've lost significant high-end hearing, and that limits me (although I heard the Cape May directly overhead). But have others in the Manhattan area been having good outings, particularly for warblers?

And, can I get something off my chest? Warblers don't warble. Some of their songs could loosely be described as pretty, but none of them warble. House Wrens warble. Enthusiastically.

So I propose we change the family name, and I've given this a lot of thought, trying and rejecting various attempts. What I finally came up with is Resplendent Leaf Gleaner, or RLG for short.

So this morning I had 1 Cape May RLG and several Yellow RLGs, but no others.

Can I get an amen on the proposed name change?
