The Elusive, The Tiny and the Mighty!

This morning the view from my deck is overcast. The sky is the color of blue-grey cement. More rain is forecast. The birds must know what is ahead for them so they are active this morning. Every bird that is common in the foothills of the Adirondacks must be singing!
I can hear sparrows, a warbler (who is much too elusive to pose for a picture), of course the common blue jay, chickadees, a crow is "cawing." A brilliant yellow (tiny) goldfinch visited the feeder but was immediatly chased away by a hummingbird! So I guess the award for the mighty(!) this morning goes to the ruby throated hummingbird! Their feeders are not close to each other, but the hummer wasn't going to have any part of another bird even in the area!
