The Yellow Warbler is found across the entire United States singing the “Sweet, sweet, sweet; I’m so sweet!” song from the tops of shrubs and small trees. The male is a buttery-yellow color with rufous streaking on the breast. The female and immatures are a duller yellow without streaking. They are easily seen from the kayak when I go birding at Montour Preserve in Pennsylvania. An active bird when foraging, the Yellow Warbler is seen hopping, stretching, and jumping around from perch to perch to gather insects for their hungry family. This series of photos shows the various poses of an active parent bird, totally oblivious to my camera clicking away just a few feet from him busily working the shrubs in front of my kayak!
Birding while kayaking–why not? Great shots of this active bird.
