Re: [cayugabirds-l] Yellow-throated Warbler PAIR at Ithaca City Golf Course

2012-05-26 Thread Gary Kohlenberg
I think my comment what appeared to be copulation gives too strong an expression to my observation. If it were true then I would have to say there are three birds, because I'm assuming that females don't sing, and I'm not prepared to say that yet as much as I would like it to be. Let me restate
