Over two years have flown by since my monthly posts featuring warblers began over at Native Plants and Wildlife Gardens. Here is my next to the last wood warbler — sighted, as all the others, here at Flower Hill Farm Retreat. The Northern Parula (Setophaga americana) was just passing through May of 2011, when these photographs were taken. You can see more images and learn a bit too by clicking here.
Carol Duke is an artist and farmer who has worked with the land on a Western Massachusetts hillside for over thirty years. During this time her land has evolved into a diverse wildlife habitat. Carol features the flora and fauna that live and visit her farm on her website and blog http://caroldukeflowers.com As vital wildlife habitats are destroyed daily, Carol hopes to inspire others to garden for wildlife, while becoming activists for wild places the world over. Her nature photography has appeared in magazines, books and newspapers.
