23 May 2019 – no casualties but two bonus warblers

The Noble Research Center claimed no new victims overnight, but there was a dead Ovenbird at the Food and Agricultural Products Center this morning, and Eric Duell pointed out a dead Common Yellowthoat on the north side of the Kerr-Drummond complex.

Regular readers might recall that I encountered this broken window on Labor Day.  I reported it that day, and it took three weeks for anyone to even apply caution tape. This week I encountered two window fellas replacing it with a bright new window.

Unfortunately, the new one was a little too clean for this Ovenbird, only the second I’ve had at the NRC.

This was an AHY-U bird, bulging with fat (coded to a 3) and tipping the scale at 23.5g.
