Flocks of Pine Warblers


The weather has been perfect for hiking and I would go every day.....if I could!


There are flocks of Pine Warblers all through the forest and even in our front yard.


I'm sharing a few of my favorite photos from this week.


And cropping them to see up close.


It's supposed to get a little cooler so we'll see what other birds fly through this weekend.


What's the weather like at your house?


Our highs or in the 70s with a nice breeze that makes if feel even cooler.


And with the dampness there are lots of mushrooms and pretty wildflowers in the forest.


We don't pick them but it's fun to come home and do a search to learn more about them.


Have a wonderful weekend!


I’m joining Saturday’s critters HERE

I love those birds. I have only spotted them twice and none lately.

Beautiful! I love the first photo best but they are all so interesting and so much lovely detail! You must love your life - getting to see and record such beauty in nature everyday! You inspire me to look closer to what is around me! Thanks so much!

Mushrooms are plentiful here in MS right now, but most of the wildflowers are gone - just a few left. Temps were below freezing early this morning, but warming up a bit now, then cold again tonight.
Great photos of the Pine Warblers!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Such beautiful photos of the Pine Warbler. I've never seen one. It really is a beautiful little bird, especially framed behind all those wispy leaves. Your wildflowers and mushroom photos are really nice too. Here in New England, it is cold and there are no flowers left blooming. Temps get really cold at night as winter is settling in here. I can't wait for my vacation to Florida to get here. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

It is chilly here this morning but warming up later which is pretty typical for November. I love the tree the bird is in, Diane. You catch such lovely photos.

So nice to see the birds in among the branches of the trees.
Weather here this morning was 18 degrees, but sunny and beautiful! Warmed up to the 30's by afternoon.

Sandra said...

Beautiful pictures. Have a happy weekend. Hugs.

Hello, what gorgeous captures you've shared, and the hues are just so beautiful, as well as the birds! Enjoy your weekend.

Beautiful cropping! The photos look calendar worthy. It’s cold here...25° with a brisk breeze that makes it feel colder. No snow, though, so I am not complaining.

Oh, I love your Pine Warbler photos! I think some were flying through our trees this week, but I wasn't able to catch any pictures. Looks like they stayed around long enough for you to enjoy! I also love to take pictures of different kinds of mushrooms, and no, we don't touch them either. But there are so many interesting ones, aren't there? Thank you for sharing your photos. I truly enjoyed them. And isn't this weather glorious?

Debbie said...

A most wonderful time of year for birding in the south!! You've some terrific photos of the warblers (ANY warbler is a difficult subject to get a good picture of it 'cause the flit around so much) and your flora today is very pretty! Stopping by I'd Rather B Birdin this week and sharing your link is appreciated...thanks! And ps...thanks for visiting & commenting at Hootin' Anni's)

It must be wonderful to see a few Pine Warblers. Even better to see whole flocks of them. I guess your in the middle of migration time for these northern beauties?

Jenn Jilks said...

Aren't they sweet? Ours are gone.

Lois said...

Love your photos of the pine warblers! Our weather has been sunny and cool, perfect for being outside.

Rose said...

Those warblers are so pretty...and I love the mushrooms. Some you show I don't think I have ever seen.

Jeanie said...

That pine warbler is lovely. I especially like how he looks, reflecting the green of the branches.

italiafinlandia said...

What a beautiful series of wildlife shots!
Here in Scandinavia it is now too late for mushrooms anymore...
Have a nice new week ahead!
