The cooked eyes of the Sardinian Warbler

The Italian name of the Sardinian Warbler, Curruca melanocephala, is Occhiocotto. That means cooked-eye. You can see why:

They are energetic warblers, filling this Rome wasteland with noise and action. There’s a nest buried deep in the scrub and a lucky chick is about to get a juicy green caterpillar.

I look forward to the next generation filling our lives with their business.
