Sunrise at 5:45 a.m.
Three songs of a MacGillivray's warbler, two-parted, cheer cheer cheer cheer cheer choor choor, the last two phrases lower. I don't hear the two-syllable cheery choory notes heard from many of these warblers.
And how nice to hear the special intelligence of a Clark's nutcracker sounding off in the background throughout this half-minute selection.
Clark's nutcracker, American wigeon, northern waterthrush, yellow warbler, ruby-crowned kinglet.
