A New Bird

This guy was in the trees..amongst the American Goldfinches, but alas
he looked orange ..compared to them.  Oh My, tis a new bird to our 
yard.. A Warbler perhaps???  

YES he is a warbler ..a Prothonotary Warbler, just a bit out of 
his zone, but that's the beauty of birds just passing

Rich nor I have ever seen one before..WOW tis so fun.  
Oh, a hummingbird flew at me today, but then flew on 
without coming back to check out the feeder. He'll be back!!!

What a beautiful blog Deena!! You have as many critters in your yard , or maybe more, than I do..LOL I can only see from my window so whatever comes into my view I am ready with my camera!! I love that you have an Opossum in a tree also!! I have video of one climbing a tree in the winter and climbing back down again. he's in one of my Scrapblogs. I will be back when I can take more time. Thanks for leaving a comment. Hugs, Ginny
