Mere minutes after a male cardinal careened off the the window directly in front of me, this little guy hurled himself into one of the smaller windows in my living room. This being just three days after the Rose-breasted Grosbeak hit the window. I feel like such a bastard. The Blue Warbler — which I’d never seen or heard of before — was fine after about half an hour. Lady Bird tried to check him out and he took off, apparently OK.
Like the Rose-breasted Grosbeak, the Black-throated Blue Warbler is only found in the bulk of Virginia during migration, preferring the western Appalachians and the Northeast United States in the summer and the Carribean in the winter.
