Nashville Warbler ( Vermivora ruticapilla)

 

Hello All!

 

An image from Fall 2018:

 

A Nashville Warbler hunting for bugs that gave me no end of poses. I chose to post this particular image because yours truly (moi) is having foot surgery and will be away from Flickr. I'll get back when I can, but my attendance will be rather spotty for the next while.

 

I want to send my thoughts and prayers out to all of you from Australia. The devastation that is happening is unspeakable with profound effects that will be felt worldwide. Be safe and stay strong.

 

I truly do appreciate your comments and views, THANK YOU! Do have a wonderful day and KEEP CLICKING!

Hi Everyone!

 

I decided to start the week with a bright image from my Fall 2018 archives. I couldn't think of a clever caption, so when in doubt, I stick with the basics!

 

I hope your week is a good one! Thank you for stopping by, your comments and faves! All are appreciated including constructive criticism.

I love spring warbler migration time. They stop by my house during migration for two reasons. I have a gurgling rock fountain below these branches that brings them down. And, my crepe myrtle trees get some little bugs on them sometimes and these warblers think that is a very tasty snack.

Spring migration is happening and that means warblers. Warblers with attitude. Always startling to glance out the window and be met with this sight. Was not sure who it was until it turned around. So if you were ever wondering what a Nashville warbler's butt looked like....you're welcome.

Hi All!

 

It is amazing how this wee bird's little feet can perch on a flower bud with such wonderful balance. I am a klutz, but seeing this makes me feel like a super-klutz!

 

Wishing you a marvelous day! I appreciate your comments and views, THANK YOU!

This shot was interesting even if it is not great because two species of Warbler are in it, Nashville Warbler (Vermivora ruficapilla) on the left and Orange-crowned Warbler (Vermivora celata) on the right. My yard is chock full of warblers right now on their way south for the winter.

I'm not crazy about belly shots, but this one was a first for me. Tomorrow is Friday!!

This is the first time I see a Nashville warber with a chestnut crown patch.

This is the other second warbler I took a photo of in the same tree.

The other was a Tennessee Warbler. I try to submit eBird checklists when I am intentionally birding, but this spring (during lockdown) I also submitted more checklists from my backyard.

This year the Tennessee Warblers were not present in large numbers but the Nashville Warblers were quite plentiful. My eBird totals support this with 259 Nashville Warblers reported the past two months and only 102 Tennessee Warblers. Last year they were almost the same total with a few more Nashville than Tennessee and two years prior the opposite was true.

Taken at Queen Elizabeth Park, Vancouver, BC, Canada, on April 25 2015.

 

There was tons of migration acitivty at QE park today including this Nashville Warbler, 20+ Townsend's Warblers and many Black-throated Gray, Orange-crowned and Yellow-rumped Warblers. I also saw a Cassin's Vireo, one Wilson's Warbler, 1 Hammond's Flycatcher, 1 Pacific-slope Flycatcher, and more, but this guy was the highlight!

Each fall we get a large number of warbler species in their migration to their wintering grounds.

Yesterday we had 5 warbler species, a Swainson's thrush, bluebirds, red and white breasted nuthatches among others.

Cool Facts from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology:

The Nashville Warbler sometimes uses porcupine quills as nest material.

Most first-year Nashville Warblers migrate along the Atlantic coast, while adults tend to migrate along inland routes.

The Nashville Warbler does not regularly breed near Nashville, Tennessee, but was first observed there in 1811 by Alexander Wilson, who named the species.

Scientific stuff:

Oreothlypis ruficapilla

Medium-sized warbler.

Gray head.

White eyering.

Plain olive-green back and wings.

Yellow throat, breast, and belly.

 

Photo taken at Rondeau Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada.

 

A singing Nashville Warbler in my backyard.

At my house. I shot through the fence kneeing down, so I wouldn't alarm the little bird. Yellow abound in the belly and breast, and contrasting gray head and nape, the Nashville Warbler is a stunner.

Springtime brings many warblers through the Anza Borrego Desert, especially with the Ocotillo bloom.

Slightly North Of Snohomish

Yesterday morning I was getting ready to go shoot some Warblers and the last thing I needed to do was fill the TreeRat feeder on the deck, only half of them had been by for breakfast and I didn't need to listen to a whole bunch of complaints about who missed and who got breakfast as soon as I got home, so I'm standing there with a bag of peanuts in my hand and I noticed a flash of yellow in my furthest apple tree, my apple trees are in full bloom so not hard to miss yellow spots even though this one is at least 75 feet away, just in case it was something interesting I grabbed my gear which was sitting by the door ready to load in the car.

As soon as I walked up to the tree I got pretty excited, this was the first time I had ever had a Nashville Warbler come to stop by my yard, it was busy jumping from flower to flower giving each one the once over looking for tiny morsels hiding in among the pedals.

Nashville Warbler- Vermivora ruficapilla

 

I witnessed this lovely bird successfully find lots of insects within a row of asters. These warblers breed in the wet habitats of Saskatchewan east to Newfoundland and south to West Virginia. They winter primarily in Mexico. Sadly, we won't see them again until springtime.

 

Thank you so much for your views, comments and faves! I appreciate hearing from you including constructive criticism.

Your photos really look so much better with FlickeFlu. Take a look and View on Black Teeny crop.

This Nashville Warbler was foraging near the ground early one morning.

that's this weeks theme at Feathery Friday-this Nashville Warbler is :D

Got this guy at the Hawk Watch

The words "singing" and "Nashville" are synonymous, and this Nashville Warbler carries on the tradition.

Got this one at the Hawk Watch

A first time sighting and capture for me. New Jersey, 2014.

I rarely have to work in the morning for which I am exceptionally grateful. Two beautiful mornings without getting outside.....other than the yard. This little Nashville came to cheer me up while I had my morning coffee on the deck with Remy :)

This Nashville warbler was passing through the Chicago area during spring migration.

Nashville Warbler at the Snow King Snopark near Mt Adams in late July.

A fresh Nashville Warbler working his way through the vegetation looking for food.

The day I photographed this Warbler another birder said he saw a Virginia's Warbler. They look very similar to the Nashville Warbler and that's what I think this is. If you have any thoughts on the ID, I would appreciate them.
