This and that

Male black throated blue warbler flew in for about two seconds
Oven bird plodding along
Uncooperative black and white warbler
Very hard nest to observe, high up, definitely three babies, robins
Always fun poking around in the garden.

Garden mix

Another nest up high, not sure of status
There must be babies somewhere, this is a food pick-up
Visitor. Male common yellow throat warbler. Flitting bird, hard to shoot.
           One of my favorites, the bathing starling.

The doves and the catbird

Late afternoon, lots of calling from the light fixture. No twigs up there, but something is definitely in the air.
Down below the catbird is also active.

Always interesting downstairs.

The starlings are such gorgeous brat birds
Hogging the fountain
I know this behavior. On the hunt for worms.
Somebody is deep down in this nest
Papa ate this worm, good to the last inch.
Lots of "talking" between doves. Not sure what's going on. Family planning?
                                                             A different kind of bird?

In between the rain drops

When someone sweet shows up it's worth getting raindrops on the lens,... but not for long. The female black and white warbler.

Nest construction, grab what you can, - waste not- want not.

Mama Cardinal

"Grocery shopping. "Mama Cardinal collecting bits for nestlings, pick-up, crunch, save in bill. I stood against a tree and watched. She knew I was watching. I know where the nest is, very well hidden. I'm not poking my lens in there.
