Disabled Yellowthroat at Omaha-Douglas Civic Center

This Common Yellowthroat was found the morning of May 18th, at the Omaha-Douglas Civic Center in downtown Omaha. The gentleman sitting on the opposite side of the table did not even know there was a colorful bird also using the same table on the plaza.

After getting a couple of pictures, the male yellowthroat flew, but went southward and struck the glass shown in the picture. It was still lively as it was captured for rescue from an unsafe situation.

The warbler was released elsewhere, after its bus ride to another place with a situation suitable for it to recover away from the hazards of city buildings.
