June 6th, 2014 – Avian Friday: Pretty Pair of Banditos

Wrapping up the warbler series this week are a pair of little birds not often seen (at least by me) here in the Pacific Northwest. I haven’t decided if I’ll continue with another series next week. Bald Eagles are frequenting the area and Hummingbird season is right around the corner.
