One rainy afternoon

YRW_121 copy

It was an unusually dark Friday afternoon just a week or two ago, light rain falling, when this male Yellow-rumped Warbler descended from their usual stomping grounds up in the tops of the conifers to forage on insects in the cattails along the edge of the pond.

Taking their time they perused the area and picked out the most buggy of the areas to work over.

Like a true warbler they rarely held still but we were lucky enough to get a nice long look of this beautiful bird before they took off to the tree tops above.


Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend.

    I love these guys. We only see them in the spring, but they are so bright and we get lots of them. You got some great shots of them!

    You really took some nice shots! Looking forward to reading more of your work. Warblers always make the grayest days more bright.
