I see breast of gold,
white wingbars too –
and I hear him sing,
his sweet, happy tune.
And I say to myself – what a wonderful Warbler.
What a wonderful Warbler.
My apologies to Louis Armstrong, but that’s the first thing that came to mind when I started this post!
This male Pine Warbler serenaded me from the tree-tops today. I don’t see him very often during the summer months, so his visits are always a pleasant surprise.
After landing on the mister for a moment, he made his way over to the peanut feeder.
He gave me a brief glance, clearly concluding that I was no major threat to his safety.
Then he turned his attention to liberating a peanut from the confinement of its cage.
Between his boisterous song and his brilliant appearance, this fellow simply makes me smile.

That’s funny….I was trying to translate his tune, and I’m pretty sure that’s indeed what he was saying. 😉
Wonderful indeed: lyrics, photos, bird AND song! 🙂
He came back to visit again today. I adore him!
I recognized my favorite song right away and it made me smile. I danced with my son at his wedding to this. ☺️
Your photographs make me smile. You are an amazing bird photographer, and I know, being one myself, although not as dedicated with my time, you must be a very patient and thoughtful photographer. Thank you for sharing! Cher Thoming
Thanks for the kind words. Sharing on this blog makes me smile – and to think that it makes someone else smile is even better!
