  A Pine Warbler Stops By!

As Mom termed it, it's a "drippy day" today.  The rain was here from early morning and still continues near dinner time. In spite of the rain, though, it was a great day at the feeders.  As I may have mentioned, I'm a web developer with an office in my home. I have the good fortune to be able to work with my mouse in one hand and my camera in the other. Looking up from my computer screen every few minutes, I can keep an eye on who's doing what at the feeders. Well, what a neat surprise today when I saw something new and completely different!  I thought what I saw was a Magnolia Warbler at first, but this cute, plump, yellow little guy lacked the thick, white eyebrow. I was stumped for a little while, but Audubon came through again and I can positively say a Pine Warbler was here - a life list bird for me!

The Purple Finches from 2 days ago are still here, and so - for a "drippy day" - it sure was a GREAT birding day!

 Sue - that is a beautiful little yellow bird. How great it is that you can work and watch God's creatures at the same time. Lucky you!

 Great photos! And yes, that wet little bird is a pine warbler! Congrats on having one stop by at your feeder.
