The Northern Waterthrush has taken over at the garden hose pond.. Today was the 5th day that it's been there.
This rare bird nests in the Northern Forests northern to northern Alaska and  Labrador.
Populations from British Columbia and nw. U.S. probably migrate south along the Cascades and Sierra Nevadas; in California, migrates through eastern deserts 24 Apr to 23 May and mid-Aug to early Nov.
These birds are probably headed to winter in  Baja California, Sonora, and perhaps farther south, where mangroves grow.(BNA Online species account)

A gorgeous Black Throated Gray Warbler stopped briefly yesterday evening, I wasn't quick enough to get a photo.
Hopefully it will be a repeat customer today.Also 2 Western Tanager arrived for a quick drink.

The new Warm Springs Pool Nature Path is nearing completion and it's very birdy right now. There are tons of warblers back there .It's tough to work on trails and watch birds at the same time( a good problem to have!)
