Birds to brighten your day: May 5

A Day on Merganser Lake XV

New birds are showing up every day. Yesterday marked the arrival of a gray catbird, eastern towhee, black-throated green warbler and this bird, a house wren. The hummingbirds showed up on Sunday, but I haven’t snapped a worthy photo yet. House wrens are feisty little birds and will fiercely defend their territory.

(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.)
