Palm Warbler

Tuesday, November 13, 2018,

This is a Palm Warbler that I encountered at Frank Melville Park last month. Warblers have been migrating through here on their way south. This bird was staying low to the ground, searching for insects. It was zooming around, sometimes visiting small bushes but mostly zipping around patches of grass. I took lots of photographs but this bird was not staying very still anywhere it went. These are two of only three pics that were in good focus. I did, however, manage to get several great shots of empty grassy areas. Unfortunately, shots like that don’t generate much interest amongst nature lovers. Sigh. JK

  1. This guy looks very frustrated. Must not be enough bugs around for him. Or maybe he’s mad at you for scaring them away. 😉

  2. I was never close enough to scare this bird. Also, in its hunt for insects it often came too close for me to even focus properly. I remember thinking about how fearless this bird was. It was literally only a few feet away from me several times. JK.

  3. Well, then he’s an intense warrior warbler and he’s mad at you for muscling in on his bug bounty. 😉
