Earlier today, I had a female TOWNSEND'S WARBLER . . . ON A TUBE FEEDER
outside my window.
It landed on the top of a tube peanut feeder, expressing sincere interest in
negotiating how to fly up to the Pine Siskin-laden other tube feeder filled
with no-mess blend. A few bits of crumbs fell down to her which she ate,
but she either decided that the Siskins were too much to contend with or the
whole idea of landing on a perch to eat seeds from a tube to be too
Anyway, having a warbler even land on my tube feeder was a "behavioral
lifer" for me, and the 10-15 second / 4 feet away from my face opportunity
to observe a warbler was a rare treat.
