At first glance with the profile, I thought it was my blue bird, but then I saw the coloring on the photo....it is tad too big to be an American Goldfinch. So have I a newcomer? Please help. Thanks in advance.
CLOSED: Have I a new visitor?
My ten year old was just looking over my shoulder and he says its a Yellow-rumped warbler. I can see some of the markings, so I will lean in that direction, as well. But I hope someone will confirm and if it is, I will let my son know. I am sure he will be tickled. But he can accept a correction, if it is something else. :)
Myrtle Warbler (previously Yellow-rumped Warbler)
Way to go Chillybean, I meant way to go (to your son). lol Please send him my thanks. Thank you Resin for the confirmation.
just lurking around and came across this thread. how wonderful it is to know that there are kids out there who know such things!
when i was a kid, i was interested in books and birds and plants but no one else my age was. i often felt like an outcast but it was of my own design and desire. your boy sounds like a real treasure and cheers to you for raising him.
Ditto trackinsand. It's a pleasure to see youngers that interested in nature. It's great that their interest is nutured by loving parents.
