Spring Migration Progresses!

semi-overcast 65 °F

A bit of birding in my backyard this morning on this much more relaxed Sunday brought in some nice migrants, especially GOLDEN- and RUBY-CROWNED KINGLETS, PINE and YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS, and YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKERS; all classic (but interesting) early spring migrants.

Male YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER, "Myrtle" subspecies because of its white throat:

Bird-of-the-day today goes to the cooperative YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER, and runner-up to the nice female YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER. A great day of continued migrant birds!

Sounds like you got a good start to spring migration. Sapsuckers and Pine Warbles are great backyard birds! What is a Global Day Big Bird Walk? I plan to be at a bird walk soon after I'm back.Keep up the good posts!
