Yesterday after filling up my bird feeders, I went back outside to see if any birds would come by. It didn’t take more than a few minutes before the regulars flocked in, bringing with them this bright yellow Townsend’s Warbler. It was such a treat to be standing right there with my camera at the ready. Surprisingly, he seemed just as fascinated by me as I was by him! I carefully and very, very slowly walked around the area where he was perched to take some photos of him. He just sat there, hopped around a bit and nibbled at the suet every so often.
Townsend’s Warblers visit my yard in late winter for a few weeks before heading to higher elevations in the mountains for the summer.
After what seemed like an eternity, he turned around as if to say
“See you later!”
and flew off into the forrest.
Have a fun weekend!
