Spring 52: Triplet!

Wednesday, May 11, 2011
7:15am-8:00am, Arnold Arboretum
cool, breezy, misty overcast

It was good reverse psychology to not bring binoculars today: I came across lots of interesting new birds who I couldn't really see clearly.

There was today's bird, who proclaimed the first triplet (grouping of three notes) I've heard in the last 7 months of this project:

Here is my version:

There was an all-yellow bird.
There was a rather loud bird I could hear but could not see, even after several minutes of intense searching.

Lately, there are pairs of birds chasing each other all over the place (sometimes blatantly scrambling on top of one another!), but today's flirtation was pretty unusual: a little yellow-and-black bird chasing a skinny red one - inter-species dating?
