2017—Welcome To My Garden

An unfamiliar bird  arrived in my garden Sunday afternoon and made herself at home.  I believe it’s a female Yellow-rumped warbler.  The hummers were quite upset with her presence as she perched on some lattice too close for their comfort to one of the hummingbird feeders.  Then, horror of horrors, she flew right to the feeder, settled on the tiny perch, and stayed for a brief moment while the hummers buzzed excitedly around her. She stayed throughout the afternoon and seemed to favor perching anywhere near the feeder.  Welcome to my garden.  It’s nice to have a newcomer.

  2. That’s a breeding female. The males are even more striking… Perhaps she’ll attract one to the garden!
