They are not feeder birds for me, but I have noticed many of them at Swan Lake in Plymouth MN over the past year or so. I love the flash of yellow they display as they flit through the branches!

This is the only warbler I have seen in wintertime in central Kentucky, Saw one amongst the goldfinches at a feeder yesterday.

In the winter I get a lot of these warblers. There were 12 on my feeders this morning. They love a homemade suet and a suet peanut etc. combination that I scrape onto a board and hang on one of my poles. I had one yesterday that continuously chased the others away. He never ate because he was so busy being a bully. They also eat a seed cake I have but really like the suet feeders the best.

Sighted twice about 3 miles east of downtown Annapolis, MD. This morning around 9:00 (02/12/2010) and last week. This is the first time I've ever seen this little bird. The flashes of yellow caught my eye. We've had a significant amount of snow the past 10 days and this morning I tossed seed and bread onto the deep snow/ice covered back deck so the birds would have something to eat until the feeders are dug out and refilled.

My Florida bird book states that this is the most abundant wintering warbler in Florida due in part to it's habit of feeding on winter berries of the widely distributed wax myrtle. It states that their diet also consists of insects.
The Myrtle Warbler appears here in Florida @ October and may remain until April. This past winter is the first time I've ever seen the Myrtle Warbler in my area. I noticed them at the feeders a few times and wondered if they were attracted by the dehydrated mealworms that I mix in with the seed.
A very pretty little bird!

For years we have been seeing this little one only in the Winter. Mainly eating bugs both in the trees and on the ground. Although this Winter they have been visiting our Suet feeders, and occasionally have been seen at the seed feeders. They seem to really prefer the Suet.
