Subject:Minneapolis update and "counting" warblers

Warbler numbers have been much less the past couple of days along Minnehaha Creek. Although this morning still yielded 12 species over less than an hour.

This morning I saw a one-eyed ovenbird: it had an eye injury (blind) on the right side. This in itself isn't that interesting, except that I saw this same bird (I have to assume!) FOUR times over a fairly broad area of the creek (about 1 block): once on the ground in dark undergrowth, once in a tree, once on the mowed grass, and another time in a different tree!

It just made me realize how difficult it is to "count" the number of a particular species I see. I wonder how many black-and-white warblers there were out there this morning? One or seven???
