Pine Warbler

This is my entry for this weeks Bird Photography Weekly click on my link to see more wonderful birds.


Looking out my kitchen door I saw this female Pine Warbler gathering nesting materials. I took the pictures from the door so they are not the greatest but the Pine warbler look so cute anyway.  The Pine Warbler is found near pinewoods, though it might forage near mixed woodlands.  They probe pine cones for insects  and larvae. The male is a bright yellow and the female has the yellow around the face, grayish wings sometimes mixed with olive. The white wing bars are also visable. I am not usre where this pretty one is building her nest but it must be close by. I have been treated with the Pine Warblers in my yard even in the winter months.








Here is the male Pine Warbler at my suet feeder.. seen last winter.
This is a more recent shot of the male Pine Warbler.


One easy way for me to see the difference between  a female Goldfinch and a female Pine Warbler is the shape of the beak.

Great shots of the warblers. The last warbler could almost be mistaken for a yellow flower if he was in a tree or field.

That's a beautiful little bird, very like the goldfinches we see here. I take it from the name that it also has a beautiful song? Nice photos of it!

Nice sot of the Pine Warbler gathering nesting material Eileen. I love watching birds this time of year. you get to see all of their mating rituals and nesting activity, then you get treated to their young ones!
