I’m finally beginning to see some pretty good numbers of migrating warblers moving through and yesterday morning this male Nashville Warbler was one of them.

He didn’t give me much of his time, and he gave me even less pose variety, but I was happy to get him in my viewfinder at all. This is a species I seldom see, seldom enough that in twelve years of blogging I’ve only posted one other photo of a Nashville Warbler.

I even caught him at the moment of takeoff. I also got a flight shot of him that I’d have loved if it hadn’t been too soft.

Next time…



Notes on my post two days ago about amaranth and goldfinches:

  • Apparently in that post I misidentified Lesser Goldfinches as American Goldfinches. Two blog followers who seem knowledgeable about goldfinches pointed out my error in the comments. I’ve added a note to that post acknowledging my error.
  • After seeing that post, several blog followers were interested in planting amaranth in their yards next year so they asked what variety it is. I don’t know (a friend gave me the original seeds many years ago and they keep volunteering in my garden). Two readers have suggested that the variety is Love Lies Bleeding, but after doing some research I’m skeptical. According to my research Love Lies Bleeding only grows to 5′ tall and has drooping flower clusters but the variety in my garden routinely grows to about 10′ tall and most of its flower clusters remain vertical, or nearly so.
