Great Pics. gardenpom,
Your birds seem more friendly.

Gardenpom,

Great photos!!! Excellent shots! Beautiful bird!

That last one looks like he/she's pearing down at you wondering what you're doing! LOL! Cute!

Sorry, I don't know anything about Warblers to help.

Nice pics, but I don't have a clue what kind they are.

Maybe a Yellow Rumped Warbler??

Melbourne, FL

I don't know, I google these birds and I just can't tell. There are smililarities and big differences in them.

Marlton, NJ

Palm Warbler has a Chestnut Cap and a Yellow undertail. Your bird doesn't seem to have either of those.

Mesa, AZ

I would agree with Pelletory- yellow rumped warbler. Out here they are usually called audubon's warbler. Has a distinctive call when feeding, really works the ends of branches and wherever leaves or in the case of no leaves, the branches come out of the trunk. That's where they find tasty little bugs!

Lovely photos!

Yep, tis in agreement also .. Yellow-rumped Warbler.

They winter-over in Florida, to boot! Super NICE shots, gardenpom !!

These are American Goldfinches (in winter plumage). Note the thick bills (warblers have slender bills)

I love the Goldfinches winter plumage. I have some nice pics of it I'll try to find.

Melbourne, FL

First time I ever noticed Goldfinches here....wish I got them when they had their beautiful colors, though. Thanks a lot for everyones' help. Purchased an Audubon book today so maybe I can get better at this.

Phoenix, AZ

The bird on the left in the set of 3 reminds me of evening grosbeak. Not that it *is*--but plumage is similar.

Vancleave, MS(Zone 8b)

Beautiful shot

The Woodlands, TX(Zone 9a)

magpied - I always think of the evening grosbeak as an American goldfinch on steroids.

Marlton, NJ

LOL, now thats one mental image!

Lakeland, FL

Yellow Rumped Warbler
