This evening and during the day there were quite a few birds in our city backyard. The big highlight was a Black-throated Blue Warbler which took advantage of our makeshift dripper-bath.

Other highlights: Wilson’s, Magnolia and Chestnut-sided Warblers, Ovenbird, & Swainson’s and Gray-cheeked Thrushes.

At Rockford Rotary Forest Preserve I had my first of season Olive-sided Flycatcher and Eastern Wood-Pewee.
