It seems to be the time of year for warblers to start passing through–I’ve seen several Palm Warblers in the past few days. They are small birds, mostly a dull tan color, with yellow on the lower part of the body and under the tail. Palm Warblers have a distinctive dark eye line and a long light-colored “eyebrow” above the eye.

Palm Warblers pump their tails up and down very frequently. This little warbler has its tail down here.

And a second later its tail is back up.

A rear view with the tail up–lots of yellow showing.
