Right now, I’m watching a family of five black-and-white warblers work the trees just over the deck, with parents feeding young. This is five weeks after I atlas-eBirded a female carrying food in the neighborhood. Must be a second brood. I understand that this species may raise a second brood in a season. But I can’t explain why I’m seeing chickadee, nuthatch, and titmouse babies this late in summer. Other birds are acting similarly suspicious. Weird.
