Yellow Warbler


Yellow Warbler (Setophaga petechia)

Looks to me like this female Yellow Warbler is gathering materials for a nest. She was very, very busy!

A mouthful of what appears to be spider web silk

Very beautiful colors, especially the contrast of the yellow color of the Warbler against the green background!
Chaka has a lot of fur to donate, if the Warbler needs more building material for the nest :)
Have a Wonderful Day, Tina!

Silver Parrot said...

What a great shot of such a bright and cheerful bird! I keep trying, but they are so fast-moving that I mostly end up with "blurry butt" shots :-)

Mike said...

What a great shot! She's hard at work.

edenhills said...

She is very pretty.

Chris Rohrer said...

Hope it's a success. It's not easy being a warbler. Wind and storms in your area can be devastating to the poor little ones. And there are always crows watching and waiting to steal a nestling. I always have to be careful when I come upon a nest because there is nothing more intelligent than a hawk or corvid(jay or crow) waiting patiently in silence for the attack.
