Yesterday the bath was busy. Both Hooded and Orchard Orioles came in to cool off.
As did several Yellow Warblers.
This Trail's type flycatcher was frustrating. It feeding around our brush patch and was making a "fwit" call. I was sure it was a Willow Flycatcher which is hard to see down here. We just don't get many calling birds. But the "fwit" didn't seem quite right to me. It was a little too sweet. And then the empid popped up and again and I heard a "pep" while watching the bird's mouth move. So it was was the expected Alder Flycatcher.
So who was making the sweet "fwit" call? How about this young Mourning Warbler. It's been skulking and calling a lot the past three days.
Doves have been enjoying the bath. Here's White-winged, Mourning and an Inca who seems to be proud of his colorful wings.
This morning I got a poor shot of a young Gray Hawk. Hopefully it will hang around the neighborhood.
