Connecticut warbler: Want to hear its song? Come on in!

There’s a story on page A3 in today’s Times about a Connecticut warbler that’s being treated for bruises and missing feathers at the Lindsay Wildlife Museum in Walnut Creek, California. (It hit a window at Peets Coffee in Brentwood.)

There’s nothing unusual about the museum treating injured birds; that’s what they do. What IS unusual is the fact that this is the first known visit of this particular bird species in Contra Costa County, California. These little insect-eaters are normally found in British Columbia, central Canada, western Quebec, and down into northern Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan.

Kind of a wee bit off-course, you might say.

Anyway, I thought you might like to hear what the call of this bird sounds like and learn a little bit more about it at the same time. Just click on this:

Have fun! /Gary
