Two birds I don’t often see in the backyard. Actually one of them I’ve never seen in the backyard.
The first bird was a Chestnut Sided Warbler. I didn’t think I’d ever seen one in the backyard before, but I noticed I had a post on May 21st from last year that referenced this bird. Just like last year, the Chestnut Sided Warbler was interested in taking a drink. This year, instead of going to a bird bath, the bird went to the Disappearing Bird Stream.
The second bird was a Rose Breasted Grosbeak, a female. She was fairly shy, only staying in the tree for a moment, then heading to the bird feeder for sunflower seeds.
