This is a yellow-rumped warbler, identified with the help of my new bird ID guide. In the past, this bird was divided into two species - the myrtle warbler in the East, and Audubon's warbler in the West - however, they have been merged into a single species now, with two forms. My bird is obviously the form prevalent in the East.
It isn't a rare bird, but I was glad to see it anyway! I also saw some black-capped chickadees that were tolerant of my presence. Here's one at the feeder.
After eating my lunch on the garden bench outside on my deck, I lay back on the bench for a few minutes to absorb some sunshine and breathe the spruce-scented air. The hummingbird feeder is hung from the eaves just beside the garden bench, so from my eyes to the feeder was a distance of about 6 or 7 feet. Sure enough, the hummingbirds came along and fed a few times while I was relaxing - so exciting to see them up close. I didn't take any pictures, but you can just imagine the whirring of their busy wings. They are quite bold and didn't mind me being there.
I made bread this afternoon (it was started yesterday) using the artisan no-knead bread I posted about previously. Here's today's loaf, which had rosemary, thyme and oregano added to it. It went very nicely with some slow-cooker chicken paprikash I made for supper.
