Walking by the Holiday Inn on Cayuga St this morning I spotted a young Yellow Warbler sitting quietly on the sidewalk. It could have easily been stepped on. I put my hand down in front of it and it climbed onto my index finger . I then put that same finger next to a branch of one of the container bushes nearby and it moved to the branch. It was as green a bird as I have ever seen. It didn't seem injured. I left it there. I like to think it will be OK.
The trees nearby were ringing with the metalic calls of male Yellow Warblers, more than one I think, though the echoes between the buildings there may have multiplied them. I don't know if the calls related to the youngster - maybe? -- asher -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://firstname.lastname@example.org/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/Cayugabirds 3) http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/CAYU.html Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
