Nature Walk: Warblers in the Snow
During our recent snowy weather, we observed warblers, which are basically insectivorous, feeding along our melted gravel driveway and in the adjacent woodland. They were constantly eating, although there was no evidence of flying insects. In the woods they sought out open spots where the snow had melted. A palm warbler and the yellow-rumped warbler pictured here would approach within a yard of my feet when I stood still. We need to remember bad weather creates opportunities for unique encounters with wildlife.
Did you see any interesting sights during our May snowstorms last week?
