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

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
