  3. Bird of the Day: Ovenbird Although it reminds me of a wood or hermit thrush, the Ovenbird is a member of the warbler family. Its strange name comes from the domed shape and side entrance of its covered nest, which is said to resemble a dutch oven.
  4. Pine Warblers

    The morning after our recent snowfall found me capturing Pine Warblers up in the pine tree behind my home. These little birds are frequent visitors to my deck where I put out food for them (mealworms and "bark butter) during the winter. As the sun came up that morning, it lit up

  8. Backyard visitors

    Those of you who follow me by now have probably guessed that I have a passion for feeding the birds and attracting them to my yard. Here are a handful of yesterdayโ€™s visitors. #BirdPhotography #Nature #BirdFeeding #easternbluebirds #wildbirdphotography #warblers #Chickadees
  9. Find the Warbler

    Amidst the Spring leaves a Yellow Warbler singing his song. May turn this into a jigsaw puzzle. #BirdPhotography #Nature #Springtime #warblers
  10. Refuge from the storm

    Given todayโ€™s bad weather in Southeastern New England, I brought my feeders up onto the deck. The birds found them, and here is a pine warbler, taking advantage of the space on my deck to get out of the rain. #Warblers #Weather #Winter #BirdPhotography #Nature .
