Spectacular warbler arrives and PS

**************Hooded Warbler**********

Time: yesterday
Place: Humming Tombstone

Meanwhile, at Tanner Spring, a Palm Warbler

Photographer of both: David Speiser

PS Here is a link [again] for the Franklin Institute redtail nest webcam. . The chicks hatched 5 days ago. They are still fluffy white butterballs, at a stage we never saw the young at the Fifth Avenue nest -- [they were too small to be seen from our angle at the hawk bench.] Surprise for me: Both parents feed the chicks. The Dad is a little less adept, it appears, but getting better.
Warning: This is seriously addictive
