Splash Week – Day Three

Today’s featured bird is the Yellow-rumped Warbler.  This fellow is a fall and winter resident here in Georgia.  I wish the pictures were a bit sharper (Let’s blame the dim lighting rather than the novice photographer!) but I’m glad he put his “butter-butt” on display!  Here he is enjoying a leisurely bath in the upper portion of our waterfall.

This one’s a bit of a blur, but you can tell he got into his bathing experience!

His coloring will darken up as spring approaches, but for now his softer hues give him a more subtle beauty.

Tomorrow a male Eastern Bluebird will make his debut on Splash Week…

    These are really good–I like the lighting, it goes well with their drab er winter plumage. And yes, that butter butt shows up very well.
