It's amazing what nice light and a nice perch can do for even the most muddy-footed bird.

Cheers, Don

I think they may be starting on your house.
Between the Gypsy Moths that ate the oaks, the Wolly Adelgid killed the Hemlocks and the Emerald Ash Borer that destroyed my Ash trees, it's a wonder I have any trees left.
On the plus side, I won't have to buy much firewood.

This is an Ovenbird. Weird name, but a cool bird with spunky personality and boisterous call.
