Friday's Feathers: Palm Warbler


Today's Friday's Feathers belong to: The Palm Warbler




Look at that bright yellow butt!

From its name, you'd think the Palm Warbler is a year-round resident of South Florida, but you'd be wrong. The Palm Warbler is one of our winter guests, vacationing from The Great White North (a/k/a Canada), mostly.

And despite the fact that this is about as southeast as you can get on the North American continent, this seems to be the Western (or Brown) form.

Birds. Go figure.

Yeah, they just won't stay where you want them. I wonder if they call it something different in Canada?

Darned birds just won't stay put, will they? This one seems like all the warblers I have around here--they love to hide from the camera!

The prettiest songs seem to come from brown birds. As for birds which hide, Grrrrrr - all I want is their image, I don't want to eat them.
