sweeter than sweet yellow warbler

Our homeschool nature studies have been more informal with all our busy spring activities and travel, but we've still been enjoying all the changes of the season.

This week we were excited to see a group of Yellow Warblers in our woods. They are so cute and fun to watch as they dart all over the place. Sometimes they would perch upside down or they would fly in place like a hummingbird. But they don't stay still for long, so out of 60+ photo attempts, these are the best I could get.

The male's song is rendered as:

sweet sweet sweet

sweeter than sweet.

You certainly are sweet, little bird.

Sweet Shot Day


  1. Those are great pictures. The larger pic looks like the front cover of one of our field guides.

  2. So sweet. I love to watch the birds... we don't have warblers but we do have yellow finches that are a beautiful yellow like that. I think you did a great job with the camera:) Thanks for sharing.

  3. Thanks for sharing your link and your beautiful bird. :)

    I don't know if you saw my comment to your comment but the link has changed and the one they have now is not working. I will try to post a new one when I get it.

    Great job.

  4. Love those photos; very pretty birds! I'm planning to get a few bird feeders so we can attract more interesting birds to our yard.

  5. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. I love little yellow birdies.

  6. very sweet...only 60+ shots, I know the feeling..thank goodness for digital :)

  7. Oh how pretty! We don't have any of those here. We have a pair of cardinals that quite often flit and flirt on our back porch. And yesterday we watched a pair of blue jays flirting around in the trees and a pair of sparrows building a nest. Fun!

  8. Those are very nice shots! We don't have large trees in our backyard - but only a new birdfeeder right by the window. And I have found myself amazed at how interesting and wonderful it is to have birds around that we can observe! I especially like the yellow finches and it's so nice that the kids are so interested too! Science can be fun!
