Black throated blue

                Female black throated blue warbler finding nibbles in the plants downstairs.

I headed off to a meeting and she heading off to find more bugs.

Bark eater

I've never seen this behavior before. The black and white warbler was chewing up this one tree, getting bark pieces onto the ground and eating them. I didn't move. You can't make an appointment to see this. Fascinating. Look at the feet, pollen toes?

Back up onto the tree to chew up more bark. Industrious female B/W. I may never see this behavior again.

How to go crazy, two kinglets working the back garden. Flit-around non-stop.

I adore kinglets, but getting a picture is hard work.

Up, down, all around

 I could watch the black and white warblers all day. They can stare down food invisible to the human eye.

Pretty female at rest.

Back to the food hunt.

Creepy crawlies under the leaves

That's all folks. Off she flew.

There are bugs in the garden, warbler attraction. I don't move around because the tiny birds are flitting in my face and at my feet. An always favorite, the female black-throated blue warbler.

In the back garden the common yellow throat was working the path. Lots of bits in between the stones.

You can't make an appointment to see a special bird. They show up if they're in the mood and accept human presence if there are enough bits and bugs. Walking slowly is a must.
