6/26: a perfect bird

It's so hot and dry that more and different birds are coming to our bird-bath.  Today Chris called me to see a yellow-and-olive bird (I looked it up later, and I think it must have been some kind of warbler).  When it jumped from the bird-bath to a branch on an oak tree, its colors blended perfectly with the green leaves, brown boughs, and yellow spots of sunlight.
