A Winter Wanderer

I know they say that “Not all who wander are lost” – but I think this Yellow-throated Warbler who dropped in this afternoon might have been.

These striking little birds are usually only seen in this area during the summer months, and even then, they rarely make appearances in my backyard. So it was a treat to have him pay a visit.

It’s easy to see where they get their name!

This fellow seemed to take quite a liking to Bark Butter. First he sampled some from one branch…

…then he sampled some from another branch.

It’s always fun to get to take pictures of a less common visitor.

Wandering Warblers are indeed wonderful!

    Hi Kathy, Snehal here. I wanted to ask for your permission one more time that I am planning to make new online skillshare class on cardinal watercolor painting. And for that can I use one of your cardinal photo for painting reference? I will definitely give credit for photo reference. I tried for cardinal references on free stock photos but none of them are like yours. I will be waiting for your reply.
    Thank you.
