Savannah Sparrow.

Last night must’ve been a good one for migration, because this morning’s influx of multiple species of small wild birds proved thrilling as all get-out. High among the little migrants at the summit were Ruby-crowned Kinglets—bunches of ’em.

But first came a croaking raven, then came a lovely Savannah Sparrow (several migrating Savannahs, too), then—at the summit—multiple warblers and vireos. Along with the kinglets, chattering at each other the way they do, keeping tabs like chickadees.

Chickadees up there, too.
