Pine Warbler

Linking up with Wild Bird Wednesday and Nature Notes

For this week's wild bird I am sharing my backyard Pine Warbler.  Some times I see these warblers year round and lately these two....a male and female or maybe it is a 1st yr male..it has more yellow than I thought the females. They have been showing up at my suet feeders.. They love the little peanut suet balls..






It took a while to see both the male and female ( or could it be a juvie) close to each other..


I captured both the male and female taking flight at the same time. The cardinal does not have a clue, the warblers are behind him..

.. I hope you enjoyed my wild bird post.. Till next week's wild bird post.. I wish you happy Birding and have a wonderful week!

Join in and post your birdies and to see more beautiful and wonderful bird and nature photos please visit:

I never tire seeing the Cardinals with that delicious red coloring. That Warbler is certainly an attractive bird for its coloring as well. Wonderful captures!

Karen S. said...

Bethany Carson said...

Those are all beautiful birds! Neat to see the warblers and the cardinal together in one shot.

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

They're all lovely, but I love the second one, where the bird has the nut in his mouth. I am always amazed at your knowledge of birds!

Today we saw a juvie Cardinal and his lady friend, on the deck. Such brilliant colors they have, just like the one you have photographed, Eileen! Well done!!
Have a Beautiful Day!

Marie C said...

Such a delightful post! Wonderful sighting...loved the "taking flight" shot with the oblivious cardinal. :-)

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Eileen, Gorgeous weather here today! I sure do love your photographs of those songbirds! Nice to see how bright their feathers are in breeding season plumage. Have a great day!

Carletta said...

They are pretty birds. I don't normally see them but had one at the feeders last year and then no other sightings. Looks like Mr. Cardinal did a good job photocopying the warblers.
Happy birding!

Lynne said...

Sweet and colorful makes bird visits really great . . .
To think there are some who never, ever watch or listen!

Mosura said...

Great having these at your feeders.

yum...warblers...so sweet

EG CameraGirl said...

Very cool sighting, Eileen! I hope a few are heading northward. ;))

Uppal said...

your feeders attract such gorgeous looking birds. Birds are lucky to be clicked by an ace photographer like you!

TexWisGirl said...

such pretty little balls of color!

ann said...

I hope you find me clear down at the bottom of your long comment list. I so enjoy your bird photography and have to admit to jealousy over any photo (good or bad) of a cardinal, especially since we do not have them in Colorado. We do get a variety of warblers that spend a few weeks here as they migrate north. I always hear them before I see them and sometimes get lucky enough to photograph them.

Sandra said...

so very cute in the first 2 shots, round and yellow and beautiful. i like the in flight shot to...

Donna@Gardens Eye View said...

Oh I love these lovely little yellow birds and rarely see them.

Gillian Olson said...

Pretty little warblers and stunning cardinal too.

Gunilla Bäck said...

Pretty green colour on the cute warblers! Enjoy your day, Eileen.

Mama Zen said...

Really nice shots, Eileen!

NatureFootstep said...

cool to see the difference in size between the two species. :)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Such neat color contrasts with the red and yellow. Love your yardbirds.

Linda Gross said...

.nice pictures of the pine warblers, Eileen. I like that you included the cardinal for that splash of red color.

Irene said...

Great captures. Pretty color on the warblers, but the cardinal is amazing!

Wandering Wren said...

Wow wonderful shot of the Pine Warblers taking flight at the same time - watch out Cardinal!

Carola Bartz said...

The peanut looks pretty big compared to the size of the Pine Warbler. It's astonishing what the little guys take on for food. He's so cute.

Felicia said...

such a pretty bird.

Ida said...

Very pretty bird. I laughed that the cardinal seemed oblivious to the warblers.

edenhills said...

These are great captures! Love the clueless cardinal.

Rambling Woods said...

Cute birds.... I put out those suet balls too. Sometimes robins eat them too..... Michelle

Rambling Woods said...

Sweet little birds... I too put out those suet balls.... Michelle

David Gascoigne said...

I am still looking for my first Pine Warbler here and I have never seen one at a feeder.
