I, too, have just been watching the warblers passing through Denton, TX. Last Thursday, a Yellow warbler sat on a branch outside my window just about 6 or 7 feet away from me, and then on Saturday a small group of (possibly Wilson's) warbler's noisily descended in my back garden chasing bugs. We've also gotten into the migration route of a group of cedar waxwings which will come through later on and descend on our Aristocrat pear tree (which our biology professor friend identified for us). The pears on this tree are only as big as china berries, so I call them pear berries. But a little later on in the fall, the pear berries that the squirrels haven't eaten the seeds out of already will be greatly enjoyed by our resident robins and then also by the cedar waxwings that pass through. A few years ago, a few of our resident robins valiantly tried to claim the pear berries as their domain against the vast number of cedar waxwings that covered the tree and were having a marvelous feast. It was a lost cause for the robins. Thanks for sharing your pictures and experience!
