Worm Eating


We have several territorial worm-eating warblers on our farm this spring. Here's one fellow I ran into today along the east-facing slop below the oil road, while looking for morels. No dice on the mushrooms, but this bird made up for it nicely.

Another beautiful warbler photo, and another one on my "haven't got it" list. I can't believe you take such great pictures of warblers and I can't even see them. Today doing my weekly field survey, I heard no less than 4 Blue-winged Warblers and couldn't see even one of them. Very discouraging.

Great blog! I've never heard of the Blogger site, but I'm going to look more into it.

I just discovered a bluebird nest with 3 eggs on my deck nesting box. I wish I had one that could open as yours does. I'll have to be satisified with peering through the hole.

KatDoc:
We'll get you some warblers in WV. And a worm-eating, too.

Michelle:
Boxes that open are pretty important if you really want to monitor your birds.

We saw worm-eating warblers in the Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve in Ft. Myers, FL a couple of weeks ago during Sanibel trip...we don't see them in this part of So. Dakota.

Also daily visits with 12 of your dazzling "ladies in pink tights" (black-necked stilts)in the bayou at Bowman's Beach, Sanibel. Very cool!

Dude! You rock! I have been away from electronic media for a very long time, so I am just catching up with all your blog entries and I am loving the bird photos you are getting. The blind is fab. Now I want one too!
