Subject: [obol] Finally! Warblers (anecdote)

After merely hearing Black-Throated Gray Warblers twice here during
migration this spring (compared to almost 700 April-June sight/sound
database records for our place since 1995), yesterday a presumed
post-breeding dispersal arrived.

Males, females, immatures all over the hill, along the creek, singing,
chasing, carrying on in normal numbers and style.

The bonus warbler was a female/young Hermit Warbler perched in a creek-side
hazel bush after its morning dip.

This year's breeders here (credit where it's due) also appeared or sang:
MacGillivray's, Yellow-Rumps, Orange-Crowns.

Nothing to chase: just wanted to share.
