Neighborhood Breeding Birds II

I am linking up with Wild Bird Wednesday and Nature Notes

This is my second post on my neighborhood breeding birds, the first post Neighborhood-breeding-birds included the Northern Parula, Scarlet Tanager, Great Crested Flycatcher and the Indigo Bunting.

I have three more birds that are breeding birds in my neighborhood. They are the Pine Warbler, the Ovenbird and the Acadian Flycatcher. I have seen the Pine Warbler visit my yard and feeders many times over the years.



Above the Pine Warbler in my weeping cherry tree. The Pine Warbler is a regular in my yard, here is a post I did back in Jan 2013 that included a Pine Warbler visiting in the winter  Happy-New-Year 2013


This is the male Pine Warbler.



The Pine Warbler has a pretty song.


I have shots showing the front and above a nice shot of the side of the Pine Warbler.


This is one of my previous post that included the Ovenbird Happy Earth day


 The Ovenbird shots were taken on a wet morning, while out walking I could hear the Ovenbird with its loud song off the fireroad. They have a thin black bordered orange crown, which is shown above.


The Acadian Flycatcher is another breeding bird in my neighborhood. They are frequently heard while I am out on my walks on the fireroad. Here is one of my first post on the Acadian flycatcher, tanager walk. 

I hope you enjoyed my Wild Birds this week. I feel lucky to see these wonderful birds in my yard and neighborhood.

I have never seen an ovenbird before. I've heard they're quite secretive but you have lovely photos of them!

Lynne said...

I am dreaming of the bird songs as I write this on a very rainy day in Michigan. Love their open mouths . . .

Gorgeous shots of the Pine Warbler! I don't believe it's one I've ever seen in person.

Kaya said...

They are beautiful, lovely and so young!!! The last bird is a baby, probably only recently learned how to fly.

These are very beautiful and amazing pictures!!!

Excellent photography of birds!!!!

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

Great birds, and very impressive photos! Thanks for sharing them with the rest of us!

Chris Rohrer said...

Several beauties I'd like to see;) Wonderful pics. The Ovenbird is such an interesting bird full of personality. I'm hoping to find this beauty one of these days:)

Debbie said...

Your bird close ups have really become amazing. The one looks just like the song sparrow!!

I don't get pine warblers here, I sure wish I did!!

betchai said...

indeed you are very lucky to have those birds, not only to hear them but also see them, in your neighborhood.

Carver said...

You are such a gifted bird photographer. Wonderful shots.

Nora at Island Rambles said...

I love the Pine Warbler ..it is a fast moving bird I think so you got great shots somehow! Interesting to know what birds nest there.

caite said...

What great shots...love that second one especially!

Rambling Woods said...

Wow... You have a great variety of birds in your area Eileen.... Michelle

Dana said...

What beautiful color on the first one. Lovely shots!

pattisjarrett said...

I've had pine warblers visit during winter, but the other two I've never seen. Thanks for sharing your bounty of birds!

Carletta said...

The Ovenbird is a new one for me. I've never heard of it. Thanks for sharing it today.
Always admire your bird knowledge. I could have taken the pictures and still be trying to ID them. :)
Wonderful captures Eileen, have a great week!

Charlene said...

These are awesome shots! I love the colors of the pine warbler.

Neil said...

Beautiful birds so close to home.

Phil said...

They are three beautiful birds to have so close to home Eileeen. Even better to have them singing away and you getting such lovely pictures - the Pine Warbler is especially good. I'll bet those Pine Warblers just melt into the background a lot of the time. Enjoy the rest of your birding week Eileen.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Love 'em...especially the captures of the birds in song!

Arija said...

I love the shot of the pine warbler's tongue vibrating as he sings.

Sharon Wagner said...

I beg to differ about the naming of the Ovenbird. He would barely be big enough for a toaster oven. And would barely qualify as a cat snack. Hee, hee.

Digi-Irma said...

Hi Eileen,
Beautiful pictures of the birds.
You have different types in the garden.
Kind regards, Irma

Karen said...

Wonderful captures. The Pine Warbler is so pretty. The Ovenbird sure is cute!

Maria said...

Eileen; I'm liking your bird shots more and more; can you tell me which gear you're using? Whichever it is, it must be with a zoom to give you a lot of versatility?

MyMaracas said...

You caught the warbler warbling - excellent! I've never heard of the ovenbird. Interesting name.

Gunilla Bäck said...

Lovely birds. The pine warbler is beautiful.

Montanagirl said...

I've seen an Oven Bird only once, when it crashed into our deck door - Survived though. The Pine Warbler is beautiful.

Giga said...

Chciałbym usłyszeć śpiew tych ślicznych ptaków. Bardzo ładne zdjęcia im zrobiłas. Pozdrawiam.
I would like to hear the singing of these cute birds. Very nice pictures of them did. Yours.

DeniseinVA said...

Great series of photos Eileen, love the ones singing. A couple of new ones to me here.

S. Etole said...

Such pretty little birds.

diane b said...

Love the bright yellow pine Warbler. Great shots and so many different birds in your area.

Stewart M said...

I do like the way you can tell that the beak of some of these birds is moving.

I think there are a number of closely related Snake Birds - all in the same genus as far as I know.

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

Incredible photos!

NatureFootstep said...

the Ovenbird looks very nice. Am not sure I have seen it before.
