It pays to get your car fixed, sometimes in unexpected ways.
This morning, my wife Chris and I dropped her car off at Last Chance Garage in North Granby. We were standing in the parking lot when I distinctly heard the song of a mourning warbler. ???! I couldn't believe my ears. The elevation of the garage lot is about 270 ft, and the bird was singing in a narrow tree belt separating the garage from the business site next door. I lured it out with my iBirdPro app, and we both had good looks at the bird, a somewhat scruffy-looking adult male.
July 7th seems a bit early for post-nesting dispersal, much less fall migration, and I can't for a moment believe the bird nested in this spot. Any theories?
