Late warbler, angry birds

The weekend was a bit slow. We did see a late Black-and-White Warbler on Saturday.

Nesting season continues. For Robins, nesting season started in April and will continue to about September. You may be familiar with the sight of two apparently peaceful Robins (males, seemingly) suddenly both flying up 8 or 10 feet and coming straight back down in a flurry. It's a bit too fast for my eye to follow, so I've been trying to get photos. I do have a nice shot of the scramble right after landing.

Quite unfriendly. They don't seem to hurt each other, since they typically go a few rounds and then return to foraging calmly side-by-side.

On the rumors-of-birds front, I'm still seeing reports of Screech Owls uptown, so I will try Inwood again soon.
