Poor Myrtle!

Myrtle crashed. Very hard! Right into my living room window.

However, after lying there dazed for a few minutes, Myrtle was able to stand up.

Willow was fascinated.

Courtney, too.

Finally Myrtle perked up, and after hopping around on the deck and resting a little more was able to fly away. Whew! That was rough!

By the way, "Myrtle" is a type of yellow-rumped warbler (gee, I wonder how they came up with that name). Really! It's called a "Myrtle Warbler". There are also "Audubon's Warblers", another type of yellow-rumped warbler, but they're in the western United States.

Oh, yeah... this "Myrtle" is a male. Poor thing... what a name to have to live with!

I love the series of Willow's head and Courtney's head. Funny!

Oh poor Myrtle. I'm glad he is OK. Great pictures of Willow and Courtney watching Myrtle.
