Just the back yard!? Nah, I want the front and side yards landscaped in natives too.

New to Me

This morning, camera in hand (luckily), I strolled the woodland paths. After getting a picture of the male bluebird, a couple chickadees caught my attention. I'm hoping they are checking out the nestbox I put up there.

A little later, I spotted a yellow blur flitting among the branches of a tree. I tried checking it out quickly so I could identify it by memory if necessary, then I lifted the camera and got off three shots--only two with the bird in it...the last shot was of an empty branch. Luckily, the two that I got were clear enough to share...and hopefully ID. I think it is a yellow warbler...not one I've seen before. :) YAY!

I've put in a post at WildlifeGardeners to double check. Anytime I misidentify something, feel free to let me know--hard to believe that I have followers. ~smile~ Nice that others are interested. Thanks.

I've only seen one yellow warbler in my life, but I think that's what this is. Nice picture, David!

Thanks, Rebecca. It is my first one too. :) Hopefully it will stick around and nest here, so I can see it again.
