friday morning yellow bits






The Palm Warbler (?) wasn't shy, snatched at least 3 insects from within feet of my head, then paused a while on this fence along the path from the Terrace Bridge to the Concert Grove and Lullwater. Perhaps it eyed me as gnat bait. I probably make great gnat bait.

I wonder what happened to the Yellowthroat.

Yes, that's a palm warbler at the top (note the pumping tail), and the dead one is a common yellowthroat, not to be confused with the (uncommon) yellow-throated warbler. I know, the names are confusing. Was the bird in front of a window by any chance?

He wasn't far from the Bald Cypress you wrote about recently.
