20 May 2018 – two little green birds

Though they might have come in yesterday (when I didn’t check), there were two birds in the southwestern alcove today: a Tennessee Warbler (AHY-U, fat = 2) and a Painted Bunting (SY-U <probably female>, fat = 2).

 

There was also a bonus at the Food and Ag Products Center: a window-killed Yellow-billed Cuckoo and a trapped Black-and-white Warbler. The warbler flew off fine as I approached.

14 May 2017 – Tennessee Warbler

Here’s another weird one and another first for the project: Tennessee Warbler at the southwestern corner of the Noble Research Center.

28 October 2014 – trapped Orange-crowned Warbler

I found this feisty little warbler at the southwest alcove and released him to a nearby oak where he flew pretty strongly from my hand, scolding me the entire time.  Although it looks pretty Tennessee-y, the yellow undertail coverts you can’t see in the photos indicate Orange-crowned (although I’m happy to be corrected on that by those who might have more experience with these species).
