It was broken more than half way down and hanging at odd angles by a rachis thread for a whole day.Then he had a piece of head fluff coming off the top for most of another day. There have been almost daily Fish Crow/American Kestrel battles. The crows dive-bomb the falcons and vice-versa. There may be some cache-raiding by the corvids. Something awfully big in the knot hole cache. He took this out, munched on it, and put it back. More recently, one of the crows was on this branch, so I think its cover is blown.Friends on the internet identified this as a Red-eyed Vireo. Interestingly, a trio of Starlings protested vociferously overhead.
