Yellow Warblers

During another kayak outing the other day, I was fortunate to have lots of warblers flitting about the trees, foraging for insects. Today’s post features some of the many Yellow Warblers (Setophaga petechia) that were busy searching for small insects. Here are a few of my favorite Yellow Warbler images that I captured from the kayak:

Even while foraging, they would stop periodically to sing out a cheerful melody for me!
