A Lesson in Fall Warblers....

Every year at this time my house becomes a GIANT bird feeder as swarms of flies gather on the sunny sides to warm up and find a nice cozy place to spend the winter. Luckily I have my bug eating warbler friends to put a dent in the number of these parasitic pests. Fall warblers aren't always the easiest birds to identify but since I have two regulars at this time of year I will help you in this task.
Here is the Yellow-rumped Warbler...and here is the Palm Warbler...
Again...the Yellow-rumped warbler......Yellow-rumped... ...Palm Warbler......Palm... HEY!!! How did you get in there!!!! Sorry about that sneaky White-crowned Sparrow trying to steal the show!
Tomorrow a lesson in acrobatics!

Hi Eve.
There was a rare event here in East Anglia earlier in the year a White Crowned Sparrow turned up. As you can imagine he certainly stole the show. People flocked to see him.

These are so nice - it's fun to see your birdies in action!

Well, this was a fun one for me - I LOVE warblers - and white crowned sparrows too.

I should have done my catching up in backwards order...then I would have known what the birds were doing in the flying post :-) Wonderful shots! I wish I saw more warblers and could learn which is which.

I can't believe you get all that action - warblers and sparrows - that is just so cool!
