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. ย 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, ย clearly concluding that I was no major threat to his safety.


Then he turned his attention to liberatingย a peanut from the confinement of its cage.



Between his boisterous song and his brilliant appearance, this fellow simply makes me smile.

  2. I recognized my favorite song right away and it made me smile. I danced with my son at his wedding to this. โ˜บ๏ธ

  3. 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
