A female Black-throated Blue Warbler spent about
10 minutes in the bubbler this morning. Also had a
Bay-breasted in the bubbler this a.m.
I was impressed by the boldness of the BTB. Many
warblers are timid around the bubbler and will wait
until the larger birds have cleared out before they
jump in for a bath or drink. This individual showed
no fear and squeezed into the bubbler while two
Brown Thrashers and a Summer Tanager were
bathing only inches away.
