Yellow Bird (4/17)

This morning I was in the house with the side door open and heard this loud beautiful song coming through the door. I love to identify the songs so went over to look out to see but it must have been on the side and couldn't see, but it kept singing then flew down back but still singing on its way. I thought it was a warbler sound and when I checked it out I believe it was a yellow warbler has anyone else seen one? I can't remember if this is too early but there is always those who break the rules. I'll keep an ear out for him.  Happy birding.

**Hi Judy, It is not only possible it is probable and I think you are right about it breaking the rules.



White-throated Sparrow here a couple of days early (for LEW…Land of Eternal Winter).  No big deal.  But his yellow lores occupied almost half of his head.  He was a beaut!  I love being stuck in the “right” part of an omega block.  Happy sun!

A BLUE-HEADED VIREO was reported from Hinsdale on the 18th.

---New Hampshire RBA



Firsts for me this evening, (4/13) were a Snipe in the southeast corner of the Marina fields in Brattleboro, a Savannah Sparrow on the edge of the same field a little further north and an Osprey gliding east along Rt. 9, probably headed for the CT River

FOY singing Louisiana Waterthrush on Henwood Hill Rd (just up the hill from Allen's Marsh) in Westminster this morning. (4/17)
