"Spring Warblers!" (pics)

4 posts in this topic

On the way back from the St.Louis River this afternoon,I came upon these different warblers flitting about and chasing each other...I'm pretty sure of the "Yellow-Rumped" myrtle variety(whiteish throat not yellow)...but not so sure of the "yellowish" colored one...Kinda looks like a "Palm Warbler"(western?) but not real sure...they were all flying around chasing each other.....was tough to get "any" pics since thet didn't sit still long enough for those "perfect" shots grin

Thanks MM!....I still find it unusual as to why 3 different species were "interacting" so willingly and freely amongst themselves....the majority of the dozen or so birds were "yellowrumped" but there were about 3 "Palms" and a couple "Nashvilles"chasing each other in mid flight almost appeared to be teasing and playing...not "driving each other off" type behaviour....and coming back and fourth and interacting for close to an hour...they were still doing this after I left....but then again ,I've never taken the time to pull over on a country road and watch a bunch of warblers long enough to see what they were doing grin....always learning!

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
