The Pacific NW does not have nearly the number of different warblers that can be seen in the Midwest or the East. So we tend to get excited when we see a warbler or two.  My photos are blurry - my excitement was razor sharp!

This is a new Yard Bird for me - so it's a big deal!

Now that you've suffered through that, here are some 'in focus' photos.

A pair comes to the woodpile most mornings.

He sings to me each morning, "Oh sweet Canada, Canada, Canada!"

I love your bird photos! Here in North Carolina the yellow-rumped warblers are common in the summer months at my suet feeders. I wish I had the variety of hummingbirds that you get.
