What a Wonderful Surprise!

Fall Northern Parula

If you follow my posts, you’ll no doubt know that I love the Warblers. Well, you could have knocked me over with a feather yesterday when my husband and I were sitting outside enjoying a warm November day on the patio and a flicker of yellow caught my eye. It was a warbler, a Northern Parula to be exact. Here it is November 10th and I thought all of these birds were long gone by now, usually leaving the middle of October. Well, this little guy was eating insects in our viburnum bush (it still has leaves on it) right behind our pond and then all of a sudden he flew down and spent a little time bathing. Now I know why I sit with my binoculars on the table next to me and my camera in my lap. I got several nice photos of this little bird so thought I would share with all of you starting with this one.

      Thanks Sheila. The weather is turning cold tonight, but it was nice while it lasted.
