Subject: [JERSEYBI] Pine Warblers
Jerseybirders

Enjoyed some armchair birding late this morning. Was watching the
Carolina Wren feeding on the suet when a Pine Warbler showed up which
was a nice surprise. It fed a little and then flew away but returned
shortly thereafter.
While watching it a second Pine Warbler arrived at the suet and knocked
the other Piney off. This happened twice and did not see them again. One
Piney was rather drab and the other had some nice yellow coloring in its
face and chest. Hairy WP has been regular visitor and Red-Breasted
Nuthatch has been an irregular visitor. Our local Song Sparrow even
investigated the suet for the first time today. It appears that our
Goldfinches are beginning to take on a yellowish hue especially in the
face and upper chest. Can Spring be far behind ?

Good birding and good weekend,
