This morning we saw our FOY Hermit Thrush several times, getting drinks at the 
sump puddle and bubbler. (#40 for the year here) 

The exciting 'first' was to see a Brown Creeper go to get a drink at the bubbler 
and then decide to bathe! I managed to get a couple photos when he returned to 
take a second dip. Here's the link to the photos:

So far, 24 species today. A noisy juvenile Red-shouldered Hawk was seen and 
the Barred Owl flew over the garden early this morning. A single yellow-rumped 
warbler was also seen. How nice to feel 67 degrees today!
