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.   high-res

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

There is no question that the Yellow Warbler is one of the cutest little birdies anywhere.   high-res

The Yellow Warbler is a very busy little birdie, flying from place to place hunting for bugs..   high-res

Yellow Warblers migrate at night, and sometimes they are attracted to and confused by tall lighted structures such as buildings and transmission towers and have been known to crash into them.   high-res

The Yellow Warbler, a very noticeable singer.
