FOTS YELLOW-BELLIED-SAPSUCKER and RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET in the yard today.
Don't the kinglets ride in on the backs of sapsuckers?? Earlier than last
year. The PINE WARBLERS have been hitting the suet feeder - something they
normally do in the coldest months of winter. Maybe it's going to be a cold winter
Warblers: the hophornbeam trees are hanging with them today. Lots of
TENNESSEE WARBLERS and MAGNOLIA WARBLERS as usual. A few CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLERS
(none with chestnut) and one male AMERICAN REDSTART. COMMON YELLOWTHROATS
have been almost daily but not today.
A bright yellow female HOODED WARBLER arrived late yesterday and has posed
for photos several times - acting almost tame. My shot of a female Hooded
last Fall has been one of my most popular photos on flickr. But I can't seem
to get a decent shot this year! She hops from ground to fence to cow gate,
and looks at me as if to say - haven't you got it YET?
After a hundred throw-away shots of Magnolias showing yellow blurs with
stripes, I've finally posted a Magnolia Warbler below. A recent Common
Yellowthroat and Brown-headed Nuthatch are there as well as an autumn Black Racer,
damsels and others:
