Anyway, here are the morning's highlights:
Catbirds were everywhere! I saw more of this species than just about any other, except maybe American Robins.

It was really hard to tear myself away and head back to the house to work.
I met Freddie at Breakneck Hill Conservation Land for lunch, hoping to see more warblers. It was quiet and we didn't see too many birds.
Not as many in sight compared to that day I saw about 30, but we saw about five fly Savannah Sparrows out of the grass in the same area down by the pond.
Meanwhile, back at home:
The hawks seem to like this particular branch on the tree outside my office window. This one brought a little mouse or mole to snack on.
When I looked out the bathroom window, I saw this Ruby-Throated Hummingbird land on a small branch. She was waiting to fly down to the feeder for a drink. I ran for the camera, and she returned to the same branch after her drink and preened for a while, giving me plenty of photo ops.
