Saturday's Critters #249

Welcome to Saturday's Critters !

Happy Autumn!

If you love all God's creatures like I do and also like to blog about them and take critter photos this is where you can share your critter post. Link up your post and share your critters, join in with my critter party ! You can share any kind of critters the real ones, pretend ones, statues and paintings, a new or old post!

I had a few days around Sept 12th-14th seeing the fall warblers moving through my yard. I was happy to see them enjoying the berries on the devil's walking stick we planted years ago for the warblers. I took all these images from my dining room window so some images maybe fuzzy. 

The Black-throated Blue Warbler is a beautiful bird. 



The male Cape May Warbler has some bright yellow colors.


Top row are the male and female Cape May Warbler, bottom row is the Black-throated Blue Warbler and another Cape May Warbler seen with the Black-throated Blue Warbler.





This is either the female Cape May Warbler or a first year male?


Top left is the female or juvie Cape May Warbler and below to the right is the Black-throated Blue Warbler.


Black-throated Green Warbler.


This could be the female Scarlet Tanager or a first year juvenile Male?


The Worm-eating Warbler came to the deck and was watching a House Finch in the feeder right below.


I believe this one below is the Tennessee Warbler. First fall female or male?


Not sure if this is the Northern Parula, female or first fall? I've been fooled before with a Yellow-throated Vireo, so this one below is tricky for me.


The Chestnut-sided Warbler below has some pretty colors.





I appreciate and thank everyone who links up their post and for all the wonderful comments !

Our photos said...

Very nice !

Mary Cromer said...

The Black-throated Blue Warbler and the Cape May Warbler are absolutely stunning, both in their own right. There was a Kentucky Birder the other day that shared a migrating Cape May Warbler and it looked like yours only it had little rosy pink cheek feathers and I was like, Oh My Goodness have to see one some day. Happy to see they traverse through your area for you to enjoy. I don't ever remember seeing the Black-throated Blue Warbler before. Pretty soon, we should get some travelers come through and oh if only ;) Have a Happy week and thank you~

Sondra said...

WOW what a great food source for all these warblers! Must put one on my wish list..along with that Worm Eating Warbler. Awesome!

What fun to see the warblers! I don't know if we have them on our side of the Potomac or not - We might, but I doubt it. We do still have a few hummingbirds around though, my feeders will stay up for a few more weeks for the stragglers passing through.

We call this tree a Mexican elderberry. They really are invasive here and spread all too well.

Cute little warblers and a great variety. I don't see too many of those around here or if I do, I probably think they're something else. Hope you're having a great weekend.
