It is always fun to see warblers and I know that migration is winding down, but yesterday there were still migrants here ahead of the next cool front. This Orange-crowned Warbler stayed in long enough to actually see why this bird has that name.
He called to the Carolina Chickadee to join in.
His joy was infectious!
A Tufted Titmouse couldn't resist.
The Orange-crowned was not taking this for granted!
There were other birds. A Chestnut-sided Warbler was frantically feeding, two Blue-headed Vireos bathed in the sump puddle and this Tennessee Warbler was finding tiny emerging insects on a small Elm.
The Yellow-rumped found food there, too.
A Ruby-crowned Kinglet paused a second while foraging.
The White-breasted Nuthatches were also active.
This young Northern Cardinal took some time to rest. It was a lovely afternoon.
