A Yellow-Throated Warbler

DSC_8430 - Version 2

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!

Possibly a Yellow-throated Warbler

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!
