Backyard Monday

Watching the yard in Ewing on Monday morning was quite productive: the Yellow-rumped Warbler(s) were singing their unmusical warble and I could hear a distant Black-throated Blue Warbler song and hints of an even more distant Northern Waterthrush (uncertain). Then I spied an Ovenbird, only a few feet from my property line (and therefore sadly not on my full yard list). Finally two Pine Siskins turned up at my feeders, which I'm still running as I get through the last of the season's seed. Sadly from the way the House Wren is singing it still lacks a mate, but with migration ongoing perhaps one will arrive soon.
