I think this is a Yellow-throated Warbler but that is just a guess on my part.  I saw this tiny white yellow and black bird in my next-door neighbor’s front yard yesterday.  The bird was flitting around in a large Live Oak with a few Carolina Wrens, and Tufted Titmice.  The birds seemed to be moving from tree to tree all down the street here.  These are visiting birds.  Yesterday I saw more kinds of birds here on my street than I had seen in the last month.

I think that some birds are moving to their Winter areas and are passing through.  If this bird is a Yellow-throated Warbler, it eats spiders and small insects.  I wish I could have taken more pictures of the bird but it quickly flew into the crown of the tree and off to a different area.  I took these pictures from my driveway on August 25, 2013.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Well–since I don’t know the Warblers, I can’t help with the name. This one is a gorgeous bird though… Congrats.

    • Hi Ginny, Yes, I agree! This bird if, a Yellow-throated Warbler, would be right at home here in Florida, the Southeastern U.S., and the Caribbean Islands. Have a great Tuesday tomorrow!

  4. I just the colorful warblers, beautiful bird and sighting. Have a happy week!

    • Hi Eileen, These are really pretty birds. I hope more of these birds will visit. I am having fun seeing new birds. Yesterday was a banner day for bird watching here. It is a little cooler and has not rained today. Hoping the better weather will bring more birds out. Have a great Tuesday tomorrow!

  5. That was quite a sighting! How pretty and bright he is!
