Area Birders,
Five species of warblers and four species of thrushes (including Robins and
Bluebirds) were part of the several species feeding through the last couple
of days, here on Compton Mountain in Buchanan County.

YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER were the warblers observed. One Palm Warbler fed in
the grass and hopped closer and closer as I clicked away with the digital
camera. Its chest was wet from the morning dew.Click here to see it.

SWAINSON'S THRUSH, and WOOD THRUSH were  two of the thrush species noted. An
EASTERN BLUEBIRD became a ham in front of the camera,

VIREOS called to each other as one peeked at me from among the branches as I
took photos. http://www.bcplnet.org/birdclub/gallery/BHVireo4.htm

CHIPPING SPARROW numbers increased to 16 in the yard, and a couple of
ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAKS made an appearance.
