I have mentioned before the difficulty I encounter sometimes with trying to identify young warblers at this time of year. Sometimes the season's fledglings appear very similar in looks and features to the female of the species and I am not sure if it is an adult or first season bird I am looking at. However, at other times, although the features appear very similar to that of an adult, there is a gist or a look about the bird that is a bit of a giveaway; such as of this one in the photo above wearing a rather innocent or perplexed expression on its face. And then, seen below in another pose, there was no doubt of its age when it looked directly at my camera with a 'feed me' reaction to my presence.

Perhaps of interest to some is a new blog which I have started today. It is called Gallimaufry Gleanings and it will contain a hodgepodge of items and observations. Today's offering relates to three old dolls I had found at a flea market which I attended this past week. You can get there by clicking on the highlighted link. I hope you enjoy!
