The Warbler Parade continues!

Black-throated Green Warbler

It was another thrilling morning of warbler watching at Pheasant Branch Conservancy. I didn’t cover much ground because most of the activity was occurring between the first and second bridges on the east creek corridor trail.

The light was good and the birds were foraging relatively low once again. I got a couple of nice images of Black-throated Green and Magnolia Warblers, but my favorite of the morning was a Black-throated Blue Warbler.

There were two of them, actually. Both birds were singing and making their way closer to the trail. Eventually, patience paid off and the handsome warbler perched in the open for a nice portrait.

  1. Just beautiful Mike. Thanks for the heads up this morning. Black-throated Blue was a life bird for me. A great experience sharing with other PBC birders.
