"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!

I spotted 3 different species in the same area yesterday.

Yellow-Rumped (Myrtle), Yellow, and Wilson's.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
