The weather has been pretty windy and rainy here in Bear Woods with Harvey moving through our area. We feel very fortunate to have only received winds and rain after seeing the devastation Harvey left behind in Texas. It is going to be a long hard road for the folks down there to get things back to normal. They will be in our thoughts and prayers.
 
One of the most common Warblers we see in the summer is the Black-throated Green Warbler. We have them nesting here each year and I see several at the feeders each day. Of course they are eating seeds or worms, but instead just chasing each other and the other birds. They are really funny to watch. They do grab an insect or worm sometimes from the crepe myrtles.
 
I am looking forward to seeing some friends at the Roswell Photographic Society on Tuesday for my presentation of “Bird Nirdvana” – Finding peace in being a Bird Nerd. Please join us, they do allow visitors!

Black-throated Green Warbler.
 
One of my “regulars” here in the summertime is a Black-throated Green Warbler. They are very curious and I have had them fly up to me on the porch just to check out what I am doing. I have several pairs in the area and along with their offspring, I may see as many as 8 or so in the mornings. I enjoy hearing their song, “zee zee zo za zee”, each spring as it is a sign to me spring is finally here. They have posed for me very well on my sticks this year. This year has been an exceptional year for me with the Warblers in the backyard and I am excited to see what happens as the birds move south. There is no telling what we will have, but I am ready!

Yellow-throated Warbler

Black-throated Green Warbler

Two Pretty Visitors.
Yesterday, I had visits from a couple of neat little Warblers. In the morning I had a beautiful Yellow-throated Warbler fly to the hook where the hummingbird feeder hangs and check things out. He posed very nicely for me for about 30 seconds or so. Then in the afternoon I spotted a Black-throated Green Warbler hunting and gathering nesting material. She posed nicely for me as well as she gathered grasses for the nest, but she was all business and fly off when she spotted a nice juicy green worm on a mountain laurel. This has been a great year for a variety of birds in the yard, some of which will appear in the calendar for 2018!
