Yellow Warbler

Yellow Warblers are so beautiful.  They have delicate red streaks on their breasts and black in their wing feathers.  They really stand out in the warbler family.   Sometimes I wish I lived more in the country so I could hear Yellow Warblers in the summer. There was one hanging out in our tree for […]

Orange-crowned Warbler

I think I saw a new warbler in Heber, UT.  Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I think this is an Orange-crowned Warbler.  I hope my ID is good, because this is the first one I’ve seen in Utah and it’s been so long since I saw a new bird here.     It’s […]

Rufous-faced Warbler

In addition to all those bird types I’d never previously seen before, like laughing thrushes and tits, China also has more familiar species.  They have possibly the cutest warbler to ever exist.       He’s so neat looking, with the black stripes over his head and what looks like a whispy black beard beneath […]

Ashy-throated Warbler

The Ashy-throated Warbler was one of the first birds that I saw in Chengdu.  I absolutely love this picture because not only is it a great shot of this warbler, he’s in a tree with little white flowers that you can see in the background.  Audubon is famous for being one of the first people […]

Male Yellow-rumped Warblers

A few months ago I wrote about female Yellow-rumped Warblers and one with a baby.  Now I can show you the non-breeding plumage of a male Yellow-rumped Warbler.     He’s a lot more drab in this version versus his breeding plumage, but he still keeps the yellow butt.     In Pescadero, California they […]

Yellow-rumped Warblers

Last week in the Uintas I saw a lot of Yellow-rumped Warblers, but it was hard to get great shots because the adults were so busy finding insects for their babies.  Here’s the male:     The female is a much lighter color.  The females look more quizzical to me than the males.  Maybe it’s […]

Pine Warbler

Here’s the second best picture that I took in New Hampshire.     He looks like a Yellow Warbler from halfway down.  The females are all gray with a little bit of yellow in the upper half.     In Arizona we saw a ton of warblers and the Olive Warbler looks similar to the […]

Tennessee Warbler

There were a lot of little birds in Costa Rica.  One of the more abundant little birds was the Tennessee Warbler.  Every time I saw him I thought about how funny it was to see a bird with a state’s name in Costa Rica. “Oh yes, I’m just wintering in Costa Rica.  We return to […]

Painted Redstart

During our trip to Arizona, our guide Matt Brown took us into the mountains near Fort Huachuca.  The trip up was nerve wracking because the turns were tight and the elevation was very high.  The view from the top was pretty spectacular. Up in the mountains is the American Redstart.  They require an elevation between […]

Yellow-rumped Warbler

Yellow-rumped Warblers are beautiful birds. They’re often overlooked because during certain times of the year they’re everywhere.  During our Arizona trip, we started saying “Oh, I see something!  Wait, it’s just a Yellow-rumped Warbler.” The Yellow-rumped Warbler is a combination of two species that used to be considered separate species.  The way to tell the […]
