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.
Female YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER:
Male NORTHERN CARDINAL:
Male YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER, "Myrtle" subspecies because of its white throat:
Fly-over hunting COOPER'S HAWK:
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!
