First of the year black-throated green warbler was a nice surprise.The parulas seem to have moved on. Our yard, woods and sky are filledwith jays right now...can't recall so many at this time of year. Theyare kind of annoying, and I noticed some focused harassment of nestingrobins and doves. Turkey males continue to seek mates as they gobblewith great force in the early morning.
