Cloudy skies brought a beautiful male Canada warbler in breeding plumage to our backyard. No doubt it was attracted to our bubbling boulder just outside our kitchen window. What a nice surprise to see during breakfast, and at close range as it moved around in our redbud tree. Needless to say we lingered over breakfast.
Later in the afternoon we watched a mature bald eagle just a mile from our house, feeding on a road-killed deer. A raven flew over, but didn't stop. We also watched 7 wild turkeys in the woods.
