Yellow-rumped Warblers

Yellow-rumped warblers, always an early-spring migrant, were in the area this morning, foraging in a mixed flock of winter birds -- juncos, titmice, downy woodpeckers, chickadees. Robins scratched among the leaves beyond the stone wall. Yesterday a mourning cloak butterfly alit from an old woodpile in the sun. But the reservoirs, which form the headwaters of two small tributaries of the Sound, are still covered with milky white ice.
