Backyard Birding – Pt. 3. White-Throated Sparrow

I heard this little guy before I saw it… Then, the flying bark chips from the flower beds gave its location away. The gardener in my household was not impressed. Hilarious.
This delicate, colourful, elusive bird stayed for a little while. Winged delight!

Backyard Birding, Pt. 2 – Yellow-Rumped Warbler

I spent hours watching a couple of yellow-rumped warblers flying around playfully from the chokecherry tree to the walnut tree, tirelessly. I hadn’t seen these little feathery creatures around our backyard in past years; maybe I just wasn’t sufficiently attentive. Everything about them—their colours, their flight patterns, and their musical songs—conveys a joyful, happy, carefree nature. What a treat!
