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.
