A few different Warblers

8 posts in this topic

I went down by Lake Superior looking for shore bird and that did not work out but I was able to find some Warblers. These guys seem to move as fast as the Chickadees.

The first 4 pics I believe are Nashville Warblers.

Nice. I'm headed up to Grand Marais soon. Glad to see so many warblers.

Great warbler images sir, I especially enjoy number three and four, warblers are so small, both of those images have pleasing light and great habitat that illustrate just how tiny these sprites are when compared to a cattail or tanzia flower. If you go to the point again, head out onto the lake side by the airport and walk as far as you can towards the Wisconsin entry, there have been pretty good shorebird pickings there lately smile

Best time to work that shoreline is from 3-7PM (lightwise), also, because of the dredging work that has been done within the last year, there is now a really unique point that juts out a bit into the lake, last week the shorebirds were piling up in this area.

Thanks for the info Shawn. My plan was to do a little scouting last Sunday and spend the day or evening this Sunday. I will let you know what I find. I went to the spot on 40th ave by IWM but stopped at the gate. Do you walk down from there ? I was not sure how strictly they enforce the road or gate.

Thanks for helping with the IDs Mike. I really wish that I could have got pictures of all the different species because I am sure there were a few more that I missed.

Jim, always walk from the gate because even if it is opened it might be closed at any minute. I have never had an issue with any of the workers that I've run into out on the pier area, in fact they have even occasionally stopped to tell me about a pelican or a heron that was hanging around. I think they are pretty much done working out there now, so you probably won't run into anyone except a birder or a drunk fisherman smile

    •   Because you have an affinity for such things??..    No, seriously, you need to take a good look at your browser's advanced settings.  Some browsers can be set so they will automatically wipe your cookies and search history every time you shut the browser down.  Not sure which browsers have this capability, but the one I use is Epic.    
    •   If we retrace what happened to get Obamacare passed in the first place, we need to remember the narrative that was used by the Democrats that there were 49 million Americans with no insurance.  Now they are saying 24 million Americans will lose their insurance if the law is struck down.  So I'm taking that to mean they actually got 24 million people to sign up in the exchanges under the law after 7 years.  So about as "successful" as the REAL ID Act...   Between the healthcare industry, big pharma, and the insurance industry, somewhere between $300 and $400 million was spent in lobbying to get the ACA passed.   The Koch brothers are pledging $300 to $400 million in the 2018 election cycle to strike the legislation down, and have also stated they will not support any politician in the future who votes for Ryan-Care.   It's how things work in the real world, like it, or not....

    •    In a  free market, ObamaCare would have collapsed two years ago. And all the promises made regarding it are and have been falling apart.   But government does not let boondoggles collapse. ObamaCare will be funded, unfortunately, with more debt and printing to keep it and all it's problems on life support   Think "too big to fail" and QE    
    •   Nunes Backs Down From Assertion Trump Was Monitored   Keep reading your fake news Uncle Bill. Also Nunes canned the next committee hearing on Russia. He is basically a Trump crony at this point, trying his best to obstruct the committees investigation.   There's Trump's transition team. Now go back and watch the Comey hearing. I think you will hear a certain 2 GOP representatives who are only worried about who is leaking intelligence rather than what the intelligence says (or literally the exact same thing Trump says).
    •   They could for example sell the information to your insurance company that would promptly adjust your rates if you showed a tendency toward unhealthy behaviors. It doesn't take much imagination.   There is actually a plan to fight this one. The goal is to crowd source some funding, then purchase the data for congressmen and publish them all to the public.
