A bird in plain view... worth two in the bush, or other leafy, brushy undergrowth.

We spotted a couple of yellow-throated warblers a couple of days ago. A wood thrush came really close to our house today. Didn't see it, but heard it plainly.

A non-feathered friend also came a little too close to the house: a coyote howled right out in the front yard somewhere last night. I adore coyotes, but not up close and personal.
