They are so pretty and cute--wonderful pictures, too! I'm not out west anymore, but it is fun to see all the migrating birds come through here. I always thought they would enjoy mealworms, but never got around to providing them. Thanks for the reminder--it would be fun to watch them eat those!

I've seen little yellow birds in the early spring around a huge maple tree next to my bird feeders. I often wonder why I never see them at any other time of the year. It never occurred to me that they could be migratory. I wonder if my yellow birds could be Wilson's Warlbers! Oh, I must be prepared to take pictures of them if they come back to my yard next spring. Thank you, Deb, for opening my eyes wider.

Great pictures and information, Deb! Wish I had your expertise with a camera and as a bird watcher. I've just planted a bird and butterfly garden, and have hopes for luring more of these fascinating beauties. More importantly, you have inspired me NOT to develop a "wild" area of my yard, but rather, to leave it "for the birds!" Thank you.

Fantastic article, Deb! I, too, love to watch birds and other wildlife. I agree that when they choose my place to visit, it is a great compliment. Can't wait to meet you next week!!

I am not a birdwatcher, except for the raptors...those fascinate me. So it is a clear testament to your skills with words that I thoroughly enjoyed your article. Thanks for giving me a new viewpoint and doing it in such an entertaining manner!

Aww you guys are so precious!!
Thank you for all the kind words. It is the angle that keeps me a diligent gardener. More to care about than just my aesthetic preferences. It's like getting up to feed a crying baby to me and keeps me on fire and dedicated to tend my garden.

Much gratitude to ya all!
