Finally, I am starting to see our migratory songbirds here! Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of these photos I took on Monday, Nov. 12, 2018. Enjoy!
Rub-a-dub-dub, Robins in the tub! A large flock of American Robins (members of the Thrush bird family) arrived in my neighborhood on Feb. 21, 2015. These are migratory birds in my neighborhood. I am so glad they are here!
My next door neighbor’s bird bath has been extra-popular with this bunch of Robins. They came in waves to drink and bath in the cool water. Yesterday was a warm day here where I live so the Robins had a lot of fun splashing themselves and the other birds on the rim of the decorative concrete bird bath. I took these pictures both in the morning and the afternoon on Feb. 22, 2015. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
I spotted a Yellow-throated Warbler on January 8, 2014 in my front yard. The tiny bird is a stunning beautiful little warbler. This diminutive songbird is new to the neighborhood. These Yellow-throated Warblers eat a variety of small insects as well as occasional seeds and sometimes, certain fruits. The Yellow-throated Warbler was among a lot of smaller birds such as the Carolina Chickadees, Tufted Titmice, Pine Warblers, Chipping Sparrows, and Yellow-rumped Warblers.
I sure enjoyed seeing this very brightly colored and patterned bird. This warbler had a swirling black and white back and head, a bright yellow throat, charcoal grey sides, and white underparts. This bird was flitting around in a medium-sized Sycamore Tree. I think it is a “Snow bird” here. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
