Black-throated Green Warblers

We’ve been home a month, and boy oh boy, I’ve had the itch.  I finally took some time this past week to get back to birding here on our beloved Maryland’s Eastern Shore.  Let’s just get to it and start with some excitement of mine!

A few mornings ago, I was sitting next to my window with my laptop, visiting your blogs 😊, when I caught sight of a flock of small birds, flitting in the tops of our trees.

Welcome to my bird lifer list #242 Black-throated Green Warbler!

Warblers do as warblers do…..they don’t stay still for long!

What a challenging and oh-so thrilling 15-minute visitation, I loved it!  💃🤗😊

Oh yeah!  Donna is back to birding!  More to come!!

  1. Superb captures of these warblers! In the fall I often see flocks of birds swirling in the sky or landing on the ground or on trees. Usually I am driving, and by the time my camera is out and ready, they have flown away somewhere else.

    • Thank you so much, Hien! I love seeing flocks in the sky, or coming in to land. You’re right, they don’t wait for us. I’ve got my camera laying out right by the backdoor, so I can grab it on my way out. 🙂

  2. Way to go Donna! These are great photos of a bird I’ve never seen, but then I’m not good on small, fast little birds. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Happy # 242 “lifer”, Donna! I like this warbler very much, I’ve never seen one before. Boy, you are hot for the lifers. Soon they will call you “Donna Audubon” Congratulations, my friend. 🙂

    • Thank you very much, Mike! No, not running out yet! 😉 There are over 1100 bird species in the U.S., and 450 bird species in our state, Maryland. I’ve got a looooong way to go! 😁

  5. How wonderful for you Donna ! A lifer in your back yard ! who could wish for more ? and beautiful captures to boot, love your flight shots and the different facial expressions.

    • Thank you very much, Ashley! At first, I thought it was another warbler that I’ve seen so many times, but these just had a ‘different look’, so glad I stayed with them. They got my itch started again! 😊

    • Thank you, Simon! I really thought they were another warbler with the bright yellow, but there was something ‘new’ about them, so glad I kept trying to photograph, I was super-thrilled at my download!

  6. How wonderful, another lifer! I’ve been noticing lots of birds on the move, most well hidden in the weeds and canopy. If the weather holds, I think it’ll be a good year.

    • Thank you, Eliza! I’ve been watching my e-bird digest daily alerts, and the reports do show the birds are on the move. Yes, fingers crossed they have better weather this year. Last year’s was devastating with all the hurricanes and storms. 😔

  7. What a wonderful capture of little twitchy one. I don’t have the patience to catch one of them. I leave that up to my partner. Looks like it’s going to be an increasing challenge to keep up with you!!!! 😏
