Pine Warbler Friends

I have gotten oddly attached to these Pine Warblers. There are four (I think) total, and they keep coming to the suet feeders on a daily basis. This makes me pretty happy. I’ve never seen warblers at feeders or suet before, for obvious reasons, but I had heard about some warblers eating suet on occasion. These Pines are pretty much guaranteed to be there every day. I’ve even noticed them on the regular seed feeder a couple times, which is a total goofball thing for them to do. Last week, one of them came ridiculously close to flying through the window and into the kitchen. I actually had to put my hand out to stop him from coming inside. Not exaggerating. That was sort of weird.

I guess they’re getting pretty pumped up for breeding season because yesterday I heard one of them singing – singing!? It’s January, guys! Come on! (On the subject of yard birds, have I already mentioned there was a Harris’s Sparrow in the yard for about a week?? Niice!)

She has worked with several federally endangered bird species (including the Golden-cheeked Warbler, Black-capped Vireo and Piping Plover), sea turtles, and bats all over the United States. She is rarely in one place for more than a few months at a time and her whereabouts are often confusing.

Thanks everyone – all the males are singing like crazy with this 80 degree stuff in Texas! (can’t complain!)

I just found out what I have in my yard every year. They are so cute to watch. I get quite a few while the cherries are here early summer late spring.
