Birds to brighten your day: April 26

A Day on Merganser Lake XVII

Here’s a bonus posting since I’ve already posted my latest For the Birds column today. I couldn’t resist posting this as soon as possible. I’ve said on this site before that warblers rarely visit feeders. That is still true considering there are dozens of types of warblers in New England and only two or three species will somewhat regularly visit feeders. Well, since making the statement, I’ve had pine warbler every day, and today, I had a pine warbler and yellow-rumped warbler on the same feeder at the same time. A warming scene on yet another unseasonably cold late April day.

(Repeat text for context:  I’m running out of COVID-19 lockdown themes so from now until things get back to some semblance of normalcy, I will simply post my best photo from the previous day. You could say it fits because of its uncertainty and challenge. I’ll call the series “A Day on Merganser Lake,” even though that’s not the real name of the lake I live near in southwestern Connecticut, it’s just a nod to my favorite duck family.)
