I had a little yard activity today (Thursday). Most of it happened between
2 and 3 p.m.
A small flock (6-8) of Tennessee warblers were going to the American
Beautyberry bush to pierce the berries; they also went to the
Devil's Walking-stick berries in the ravine, scarfed aphids from the
ligustrum tree, and bathed in the misters and birdbaths. Mixed
in with them were several House Finches and a couple of Red-
eyed Vireos. The usual residents were also present.
I also had a Worm-eating warbler, 2-3 Parulas, and several
A first-of-season (for me) Gray-Cheeked thrush also came in
to bathe for quite a while. I had a Swainson's thrush yesterday
in the ravine but didn't see it today.
