Veeries and Others

No time for sketches or photos today but  I did want to update this blog with some new visitors to Devil's Walkingstick. Yesterday at the Wissahickon in Philadelphia I saw two Veeries  eating the fruit of the bush. Nearby a Black-and-white Warbler was traversing its trunk looking for food. I shouldn't really count this since it is birds that eat its fruit that I'm trying to document. Still it is interesting that the warbler chose it.

And not surprisingly American Robins were constantly landing in it, bouncing around as though on a trampoline. It really  is an interesting sight to see how heavily they  land among the berries.
