‘A Bestiary’ continues . . . this month featuring the medium sized and strikingly marked Setophaga magnolia. I first sighted this little songbird kicking up detritus from within pots on the terrace garden. It was May 2009 and proved to be, so far, my only close-up encounter with this beautiful warbler.

A rather bold breeding male sits with eyes focused on mine. Magnolia Warblers breed within young stands of conifers. You can learn a bit more by visiting my recent installment over at Native Plants and Wildlife Gardens.
