Grace's Wblr in MEN
- Thur, 1 Jan 2008 -- Late this afternoon, I saw the GRACE'S WARBLER
on Rd. 500 D, just north of Jack Peter's Bridge. When, Jim and I arrived,
there was a large flock of Townsend's Wblrs, Pygmy Nuthatches, C-B
Chickadees, Brown Creeper, and a few Yellow-rumps.
NOTE: The call and the Grace's behavior are the BEST ways to locate the
bird. The call is a soft, VERY-slightly slurred, VERY-lightly down-curved
"schlip." The (possible female) behavior is very active. It stays high in the
canopy of the pines, but it also "fly-catches" in an upward, almost bouncing
behavior, up and down.
