Yellow Warbler

The Yellow Warbler is a bright yellow little birdie, that mostly eats caterpillars and other bugs ... and occasionally a few berries. They are not that common in Fort Edward, but we do have them here.   high-res

Yellow Warblers are migratory, they summer here, but in winter they fly south to Central America. When nesting, they are sometimes victimized by Cowbirds who will lay their eggs in Warbler nests. The Warblers are not fooled and simply cover the Cowbird eggs, and lay their own on top ... sometimes repeatedly.   high-res

The Yellow Warbler, a very noticeable singer.
