Black and White Warblers, Tufted Titmice, Carolina Chickadees and Carolina Wrens were all flitting around the shady leaves of the Live Oaks here on my street. I took these pictures on a hot Florida afternoon. These songbirds were likely attracted by the numerous caterpillars up among the shady canopy of leaves in these massive Oaks. I also have noticed that it may be molting season for many of these small birds.
I took a picture of a beautiful but rather ragged-looking Eastern Bluebird the day before I took the pictures of the Warbler, Titmice, Chickadee and Wren. All of these birds enjoy eating caterpillars, small insects, and spiders. The Black and White Wrens and the Carolina Chickadee are occasional visitors to my neighborhood, while the Tufted Titmice and Carolina Wrens are pretty regularly seen resident birds. I took these pictures on July 26-27. 2013 in my yard and from my neighbor’s yard. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
