Backyard Warblers

I am linking up with Wild Bird Wednesday and Nature Notes

For this weeks featured bird I actually a variety of warblers that stopped by my yard for the last week or so.
 I believe I have already shown the Chestnut-sided warbler but I have a few others that I am excited about. It seems the warblers are really attracted to Pokeberries. They LOVE them.

This Goldfinch looking bird is really a Tennessee Warbler..The beak is one way of id-ing a warbler. 




At times I was seeing two Cape May Warblers together, but it was hard trying to focus on one bird with the pokeberries and leaves in the way. I believe I had some other warblers moving around my yard, a few times I would see a warbler disappear into our weeping cherry tree before I could id.


Looks like the warblers also found the crepe myrtle to be a favorite like the Scarlet Tanagers in my previous post.

All of these photos were taken from my deck or my dining room window. It is pretty cool to be able to see all these warblers right in my yard. I am wondering what warblers I was missing all week while I was at work. These shots were taken Friday evening, Saturday morning and some more on Sunday.  I am lucky I did not have to travel to see them, they all came to see me or more like eat our pokeberries.

  2. I think I may have seen a warbler in the driveway puddle yesterday morning. It may have been a goldfinch though as I'm not sure if we get warblers here in MA. I know we have plenty of pokeweed in the surrounding fields though.

  4. I'm amazed at all the different types of warblers visiting you. It's like a warbler sanctuary. I hope we got some for fall migration.

  11. Fantastic viewings, Eileen, and great shots... Little warblers we don't have around here.

    I believe these pokeberries are quite toxic... Phytolacca is invasive now in France and measures are taken to eradicate it because it is also a cause of deforestation where it is prolific.
    Cheers and keep well!

  21. Hi Eileen, What a nice experience for you to have the various Warblers come to your yard. Poke does attract a big interest from the birds. We had some at our little farm in that gulch area - the Mockingbirds and Catbirds loved Poke. Have an outstanding day!

  41. Wonderful warblers Eileen. Better plant up more of those pokeberries bushes for next fall.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Amazing... I've never seen so many warblers even when we went looking for them at birding places, like when we were in Port Aransas during migration... I'd find it hard to leave that window (darn work for interfering with your birding!)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Nicely done! You have been visited by some awesome Warblers!!

    ReplyDelete

  54. you ae lucky indeed that live where you live. So many pretty guests at your table.

  55. So Blessed you are to have so many species of Warblers visit you. We may have them, yet I cannot land on them at all...I think in fact they may be coming through and eating berries across the lane, yet as soon as I approach, they leave ;(

    ReplyDelete
  56. WOW!!!! That's a lot of warblers. I am so familiar with our warblers here, but looking at the photos you have, they look so similar. How do you tell them apart? I've seen the Chestnut-sided warbler but as for the others.....not so much:) Good tip on the TN warbler. A couple have been seen around our area. Searching for warblers can be difficult.....I have dipped on three this season....Hermit, Olive and Hooded:(
