      Yes, Alysson did a great job capturing them. It is 12 miles outside of McCall. Cheers!

    I think it is a COMMON taken from A KID'S FIRST BOOK OF BIRDWATCHING... A QUINTET BOOK ............ most abundant warbler in North America (but not the Artic) lives in thickets, marshes, fencerows, brushy fields, overgrown gardens (WE HAVE THOSE) black robber's mask (raccoons aren't the only animals with that identifying coloration) and golden undersides, a short tail the female lacks noticeable field marks, dull yellow below and olive above We love our birds! 6 birdbaths, feeders and one big feeder pen to keep the cats away! Thank you for sending ALL the gorgeous photos!
