3 September 2014 – Mourning Warbler

I found this AHY, fat = 2, female Mourning Warbler at the southwest alcove this morning.  My warm memories of these birds are of finding them skulking through the ferns in Pennsylvania’s Allegheny National Forest, with the males’ ringing and rolling song sharing airspace with the Winter Wrens’.  Dead at a window in a landscape of steel, glass, and concrete is an ill-fitting end to what must have been an exciting, adventurous life for this little gem.
