Palm warbler (Setophage palmarum)
Back from it's winter home in the southern U.S. or northern Caribbean, this palm warbler won't be finding any palms for a few months since an estimated 98% of them breed in bogs and fens of Canada's boreal forests.
Eastern form, which is brighter in colour than the western
Dozens of palm warblers were flitting about Tiny Marsh yesterday, alighting for mere seconds on branches before jumping to others. This tiny bird looked so handsome on this maple branch, the leaves just emerging. His rusty cap and yellow markings go well with the leaves, don't you think?
I am linking with I'd Rather B Birdin' HERE.
What amazing colors and markings. Great photos CG.
What a beautiful bird. I have yet to see one in my backyard. Love your captures.
Feliz Dia das Mães!
Great photos and as always perfect information Thank you. B
Lovely birds. Look great against the reddish leaves.
I wish you a nice Sunday.
I send warm greetings from Polish.
this bird is gorgeous, do you have palms in Canada? i was thinking his name came from being the right size to sit in the palm of our hands. love his colors
Pretty shot of the Palm Warbler! Happy Sunday!
Great close ups!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
what a beauty! just love their russet caps!
Yes, he is a beauty, nice shots!
Fabulous warbler shots you have been getting!
Great close up image! I also love the leaves still in the process of leafing out!
Gorgeous rich, warm colours!
Another lovely bird. You should publish a book of all these images!
He is a sweet bird with an unusual name as you say. Great photos. The hummingbirds are back here already, earlier than last year. I put out my feeders this afternoon and am watching for them. :)
Extraordinary images!! Love the coloring of the bird against the blue sky and the near-like palm warbler colors of the leaves. Amazing.
Há uma certa atmosfera de magia, um colorido diferente. Parabéns!
He is just beautiful, and what wonderful photographs these are!
Great shots, the colour of the bird is almost the same as the leaves, he can sit here and not be seen.
That is so perfect. I enjoy birds,but almost as much,I enjoy the new growth in spring.
Hey, THANKS!!! I've never seen one in person . . It's kinda thrilling that YOU can share like this . . don't you think??
Such a sweet, little thing!
This one blends in so well! I love the beautiful coloring and I'm sure it sounded as lovely.
He blends in really well with those leaves.
Lovely bird photos once again. Cool colors !
In south Florida we mostly see the dull western race of the Palm Warblers, so it is great to see the eastern form, so brightly colored!
That is a very pretty little bird. Don't think I've seen one around my part of the world.
Tiny Marsh was a wonderful birding place for you! What a cute little warbler.
A beautiful bird! =) and yes he/she is very well camouflaged when sitting in that tree with those lovely leaves! =)
Great captures! Such a beautiful bird.
