Warblers Passing Through

The little guys are my wife’s job. I just can’t stand there waiting for them to stop moving or get to a clear spot with no branches. After a few minutes I have to move on.

This first bird is a Palm Warbler. Most of the year they are in Canada. For a few months they settle on the southern US coast. That’s all I know.

These usually have a yellow butt. The males are black and white. So as you see, I know even less about them.

All these photographs were taken on the edge of the Ashley River in South Carolina, just outside Charleston.

  1. I’m am a neophyte birder and in September went on a birdwalk here in central Ohio with a particular lookout for migrating warblers in their fall plumage. It was an overcast day, so not a very good day for birds, but we did spot a Nashville warbler, a life bird for me. Afterwards the naturalist from the park system gave a slide presentation on fall-plumaged warblers that might come through our flyway. It was very enjoyable and educational. Unfortunately i spent the rest of the fall ill and in bed, so I didn’t get to see any more warblers. Next year! 🙂
