This morning I photographed a couple of birds that look like nothing I’ve ever seen before – kind of like a mad phylogenist’s mashup of a mynah, antbird, ani, and Miley Cyrus.

I’ll post the answer later. Earlier in the morning in Sapsucker Woods, I didn’t find any passage migrants, but I did see many of the usual breeding species, including a couple of male Scarlet Tanagers fighting near the Woodleton Boardwalk. They were issuing unfamiliar “klert” vocalizations that I thought at first were from a squirrel.
