Pine Warblers, Palm Warblers, Carolina Chickadees, Carolina Wrens, Yellow-throated Vireos, and Yellow-rumped Warblers have recently arrived in the area! Here are some photographs I took of the small cuties in the past several weeks. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
Songbirds abound in my neighborhood these days. On Thursday, February 6, 2014. I walked around taking pictures of various birds I saw in the trees, bushes, bird bath, and on the street. I saw an American Robin, a Yellow Rumped Warbler, a male Northern Cardinal, an Eastern Phoebe, a Carolina Wren, a Red Shouldered Hawk, and a Palm Warbler.
These are really nice and useful birds. Some of these birds catch flying insects such as gnats and mosquitos. A few are seed and fruit eaters. The warblers tend to flit about in the higher branches of the trees or calmly stroll around the streets near the curb trying to find a tasty bite to eat.

Here are some pictures of Palm Warblers, and Yellow-rumped Warblers that I took on April 7, 2013. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
These may be Yellow-rumped Warblers. I am not totally sure but that is my best guess. They may be in their Winter feathers and also may have been females. I recently saw a small flock of these tiny birds in several yards along my street here in Florida. There was a pair that were perched on the eves of one of the homes, that were trying to hunt for insects along the rain gutters (also known by many as eve’s troughs). They were flitting around a lot. My street has many stately large Oaks, Magnolias, Sycamores, and Pines, so I will expect to see birds around, in addition to the ever-fun squirrels. I took these pictures in my yard here in Florida, on March 24, 2013. The weather had been rainy and very windy. I am going to post on Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s for the next several months.

The Yellow Rumped Warbler is a small colorful sparrow like bird that lives way way up in the crown of the trees. I took these photographs in my backyard Hickory and Oak trees yesterday afternoon. It was sprinkling out and was very windy. The Yellow Rumped Warblers flitted around the trees looking for insects to munch on. The Warblers are new to me and this is the first flock of Yellow Rumped Warblers that have been here since I moved here last Summer. I believe that these birds are migrating North for the Summer. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger version of that photograph. Enjoy!
