What A Wonderful Warbler

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.
