Warblers were always abundant in Spring, I saw 19 species of warblers this spring. Our yard is a great habitat for migrating warblers, some of the highlight warblers I saw this spring were, a couple of Canada Warblers, Magnolian Warbler, Northern Waterthrush, Northern Parula, Cape May Warbler and a Wilson's Warbler.
I didn't get pictures of every single warbler I saw, but pretty close!
Warblers are one of the joys of spring, their beautiful songs and bright colours (usually)
Me and my brother were excited when we saw a Northern Waterthrush while we were out birding, a lifer! I've always wanted to see one.
Tennessee Warblers were pretty common, some even coming to our fruit we put out.

Yellowrumps may have been the most common, but I don't get bored of them, they are really pretty birds.

Yellow Warblers were fairly common, popping in and out of bushes,

I didn't see too many vireos, but I got three species, Red-eyed, Warbling, and Blue-headed Vireo.
One time a Red-eyed Vireo hit the window, I almost accidentally stepped on it. Luckily it was fine and flew away, but before that I was able to get some really close up shots!
Stay tuned for the next post!!
