This adorable little Black-throated Green Warbler took a brief break in his migration the other day, right around the time the blossoms emerged on the flowering crabapple tree. I love spring! I just wish it lasted longer.
I was so excited to spot this little traveller in my backyard the other day! Thankfully, he wasn’t shy and stopped to pose for the camera. After consulting my bird book, I discovered that he is a Yellow-rumped Warbler (Myrtle variety). I had never seen one before in my life! The tiny white feathers under his eye give him a look like he’s a little peeved with the world. With all that’s going on, I can understand.
I chose this bird because he is such a cutie! I’ve never actually seen one, although they apparently migrate through our neck of the woods.

I’m a quarter of the way through my 100 birds series!
