19 October 2009 – Orange-crowned Warbler

The bird was limp and seemed fresh, but the ants had already gotten to the head, and I didn’t collect the specimen. Follow this link to learn more about the Orange-crowned Warbler. I couldn’t determine sex of the bird, but it was full of fat – fat score = 3.

In addition to the Orange-crowned, I found a very much alive Grasshopper Sparrow in one of the western alcoves of the NRC this morning. I herded it out to safety.
