Subject: Prothronotary warblers nesting in fruit jar
Yesterday Gary Felker and I saw prothronotary warblers nesting in a fruit jar in a boathouse on a small private lake near Fort Smith. The owner had found the nest only because he saw an adult bird fly to it. The four babies, we took a quick look before returning the jar to its place on a shelf, are feathering up and will soon be leaving the nest. They will have to be strong enough to hop up an inch or so to get out of the jar.
