Bathing Beauties

STOP the bird guide presses! These are either Yellow-rumped Warblers, or... ah, ahhh, they used to be called Myrtle Warblers, - then they were Yellow-rumped Warblers, and now it seems they may be called Myrtles again. When asked, the birds stated they do not care a tweet what we call them as long as the photos capture their "good side". 















Still confused by the powers that be, Gunnar

Very good!

Are they enjoying your habitat? I can't bring myself to call it a water feature.

Dear Mr. Nargadant
Birds love moving water. None of this has been planned long term. Tongue in cheek I originally referred to the cow tank I bought at Fleet Farm (on sale), as my "water feature". The cow tank is still there at the bottom, as a holding tank and home for the pump, though it is no longer easily visible under the rocks and plants.
