Yard Critter of the Week - Palm Warbler

Palm Warbler

It is the time of year when most warblers have long left these parts. But one that lingers is the Palm Warbler. And we've had several, or maybe one continuing, for a couple of weeks in early November. Alas, with the recent cold snap they seem to be gone for good now.

They show up in the gardens but don't stay long. Leading me to believe it is multiple birds just passing through.

The bird shown in these images, not surprisingly given our location, is eastern variety, the yellower of the two morphs.

It spent its time in the garden looking to fuel up on bugs before continuing its journey south.

And kindly posed for a suitable shot for the "Bird Butt Field Guide".
