Watching for Warblers


There are all sorts of reports of migrant warblers across the state on Birdbrains this week. I’ve been watching the neighborhood for Bow Tie, our Yellow-Throated Warbler that comes to our yard each winter. I’m a little disappointed that I haven’t seen him yet. At Wild Birds Unlimited two weeks ago they told me that people were starting to report Painted Buntings. I’ve had my millet out for a few weeks inside the bunting cage, but I haven’t seen any of those either. :(

So Goldy has a very important task: as resident birdwatcher, she’s responsible for first-of-season sightings, and then she needs to tell me what she sees! But she tends to keep her sightings to herself…
