Birding is fun, especially when you do not have to leave your yard to go birding. For my post I am sharing the warblers that moved thru my yard the last two weeks of September and some into October.
The Chestnut-sided warbler is just one of the warblers that I am excited about. It seems the warblers are really attracted to Pokeberries. They LOVE them.

The warblers came in waves at first it was the Chestnut-sided Warbler.
A fall Cape May Warbler
A fall Nashville Warbler going after some pokeberries.
Another shot of the Nashville Warbler.
This Goldfinch looking bird is really a Tennessee Warbler..For me the beak is one way of id-ing a warbler.
Like the shot above at times I was seeing two Cape May Warblers together, but it was hard trying to focus on one bird with the pokeberries and leaves in the way. I believe I had some other warblers moving around my yard, a few times I would see a warbler disappear into our weeping cherry tree before I could id.
The beautiful Black-throated Blue Warbler.
Looks like the warblers also found the crepe myrtle to be a favorite. Like the Scarlet Tanagers in my previous post about the local breeders the Scarlet Tanager.
All of these photos were taken from my deck or my dining room window. It is pretty cool to be able to see all these warblers right in my yard. I am wondering what warblers I was missing during the week while I was at work. I am lucky I did not have to travel to see them, they all came to see me or more likely to eat our pokeberries.
