Afternoon with a Yellow-rumped Warbler

These sweet birds travel in flocks.
This male seems to be alone.
Perhaps he is a scout.
Maybe the flock will come later.
Today he was checking out the trees in my yard.
He likes the tops of the trees.
I did get to see his coloring and why he is named Yellow-rumped.

Hi Sherry
Another lovely post! If you check my blog Avoiding Cybercide, there is a bit of information re e-books. Basically, it's a word processing cut and paste experience with conversion to pdf format. I think there is a back up available on blogger but I haven't checked it out. Let me know how it turns out! It's time-consuming but rewarding...

I see you are putting your Sibley Guide to good use.
We are starting to see different birds now as they make their way north. Now I have moved the location of my computer and look out over the garden I can see and hear them more.

I am beginning to think that you live in a tree house so you can capture all these wonderful images of birds! Love your photos! I have not seen birds like these! I am looking for birds here in Arizona! hugs NG

Your photos should appear on greeting cards, they are absolutely stunning! Not only are your photographs beautiful but I learn something new everytime I visit!

Hi Sue,
Thank you!
I want to archive Corner and will work on learning how to do the e-book.
I do like the birds. They seem to like my yard and my seed.

Dear Sheila,
I have almost worn out the Perterson's Eastern Field guide and my poor Birds of Missouri will need to be replaced as I look at the pictures in it everyday!
The Sibley's "Lives of Birds and Behavior" is helping me understand the birds. Birds!!! I do love them.
You will enjoy being able to look up every now and again to be with the birds.
I find I do most of my work anymore after dark and before sunrise.

Dear Naturegirl,
Arizona has lots of divine wildlife. I looked for the Cactus Wren while I was there years ago. It is the state bird. We did lots of desert and canyons while visiting the state. Beautiful landscapes. Enjoy your grandchildren and time away from home.
I would love a tree house!!

Dear French Nest,
Thank you Dearheart!If someone wants to pay me for photos I have plenty I could sell! We laugh at my house, since everyday I seem to be able to take a few hundred!
I think for a small city yard I do okay. The camera has been so fun.
I have been gardening, birding, butterflying and bugging for 35 years. It is nice to be able to share what comes and goes in the garden.
