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.

  26. 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!

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

  28. Beautiful birds so close to home.

  29. 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.

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  32. 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.

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

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

  35. 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?

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

  37. Lovely birds. The pine warbler is beautiful.

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

  39. 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.

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  42. 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.
