This morning I was sure I heard an OCW singing out there, but I couldn't
find the bird. A little later I was talking on the phone, wandered out onto
the deck, and there he was, foraging in the neighbors' cherry tree, which
largely hangs into our yard, with a gaggle of chickadees for company. He was
very cooperative, let me duck back inside for my binocs and allowed good
looks for five minutes or so. Yay! A new (live) bird for the backyard list.
