Parula nest photos June 22

 the day of the hatch, June 22,
 She still did a good deal of brooding
 She would come out for a bath
 the nest is within site of the bird bath
she would wash
 preen
 and repeat, often taking another dip after vigorus preen/shakeout

 She begins to deliver feed.
 time to eat
 another bath, cleaning her rapier
feeding in the morning fog of June 23
the male likes to bath too but besides singing and zone defense he has made contribution on the home front, I have seen none.
