On September 01 at around 2:00am we awoke to a scratching mewing from the living room. On the rug, under a high chair was a Northern Waterthrush. We photo’d it and let it go. I’ve never heard a warbler make such a noise before.
Three days ago a Northern Waterthrush landed three feet in front of me in just outside the greenhouse and ate from the ground. It had only one leg. I checked the photo I took on the first and (while I can’t be totally certain from this single photo) that bird also had one leg. The bird is still present this afternoon, feeding in the garden.
Pretty cool. I like that stuff. No hummers at the farm in three days.
My father, in Peterborough, reports two YELLOW THROATED VIREOS at his bird bath yesterday morning.
