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!
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.
