Kinglets

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.

Ruby-crowned Kinglet.

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.

Chestnut-Sided Warbler (immature).

Fog in the morning, sun in the evening, took one hike in each. Good wind early, few birds—but I did grab a photo of a young warbler late. Also, in the wee hours of this morning at home, I found a tiny Red-backed Salamander.
