A Yellow-throated Warbler Entertains Us

On one of our usual spring walks along Griggs Reservoir and the river below the dam looking for wildflowers and warblers

we were excited to see several very interesting and beautiful spring wildflowers. A very small one was new to us. It’s size having allowed it to evade previous discovery.

Across the river we observed a Red-tailed Hawk peering above the edge of it’s nest. Too far away for a good photograph.

We noticed that Goldfinches seemed to be everywhere

But what made the day really special was that on our way back to the car, having seen no warblers up to that point, we noticed movement near the top of a tree and stopped to take a closer look. For what seemed too short a time, we were entertained by a Yellow-throated Warbler busily going about it’s day.

A lovely way to end a spring walk along Griggs Reservoir.
