Yellow-throated Warbler

This is the first warbler I photographed in March this year when I visited my friends in the beautiful north Georgia mountain, Talking Rock. Yellow-throated Warbler (Setophaga dominica) is a common warbler breeds mainly in the southeast. They love to nest and forage in the canopy of pine and tall trees. I often see them when I bird at Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield Park  ( #1 birding hot spot during migration) but there is no way for me to even snap a pic of them. I believe this one is a female if you look closely you will agree with me!

Spring migration starts this week. Warblers are birders' love during migration. They all sing beautifully and sometimes that could be very confusing especially when you go out with your first warbler field trip.  I have ibird Pro2  (this one has both iphone and android version) as my tour guide and on top of that, this is a book you definitely want to take with you on the field trip, Stokes Field Guide To Warblers. This small book has only 160 pages with all color pictures and warblers are classified based on their colors along with range map and fall images. It is an awesome reference book that you want it in your backpack! -- Happy Birding! -- Linda
