This morning was extraordinarily busy with birds on my patio. This yellow-rumped warbler was part of a flock that came, not to feed, but to drink and bathe. It’s the first time I’ve ever had an opportunity to be this close to warblers, and it was purely delightful. Though the birds could hear the click of the camera, they stayed near. Here’s one little mite before he took a sip of morning refreshment.
