Warbler happy

Palm warbler on the ground, much easier on my neck
Brilliant male B/W warbler
Adult male yellow rump
First year female yellow rump, drab colors
Nothing drab about the male goldfinch

Looking up

Branch picking time over Strawberry Field. Hard to get focus through trees. Serious activity, home construction.
This could be for San Remo nest.
Also in the home construction business, West End Avenue.
Also looking up, but not for home construction. This is food protection behavior, danger from above??  Grackle sure looks funny. No danger in sight.

Watching behavior and details

Beauty on the way to the park
Lunch for Mama
Mama!
I love being eyeballed by the nuthatch
Redwing picked up more than it bargained for
Having conversation with blue jay
Ah, a low down palm warbler
                                                 Jeez,  there's a spy in the neighborhood.

A little variety

The prairie warbler is still in town, lots of bugs and seeds available.
Its song is exquisite
Female towhee
Male towhee in the dead leaves
Chipping sparrow with nesting material
Humans aren't the only ones to watch birds
