Description

Cold, rainy day even for May, Temps around 40. This little guy popped in for about a half hour to feed. This is my very first sighting of a Black-throated blue Warbler. There have been a number of Yellow rumps around as well. Also First Oriole pair sighting today. Oranges ore out in case they return.

    Wow! What an awesome feeder bird! That is a double lifer. lol
    New for the feeders and new for your yard.

    I had one in the yard today as well. I had a 5 warbler day so far today.
    But, aside from Yellow-rumped, never had one at the feeders. Congrats!

    Thanks, Weather has been strange, Snow today and still in the forecast, so might be an interesting few weeks.

    Same here in the hills of Jersey. 3 days of rain with 2+ inches plus day temps in the 40’s. Crazy for mid May! But, thankful that we aren’t as far north and high in elevation as you with the snow! Yesterday I had a new yard warbler as well. A handsome male Cape May. So, it turned out to be a 6 Warbler day! I am keeping an eye on my feeders more since you never know!

    Good birding!

    Great Day,! Thanks for sharing. Our Blue was back again today. Another cool. wet day. Seems to enjoy the shelled black oil seeds. I have meal worms in an adjacent feeder, but ,no interest. On the other hand, robins, blue birds, chic-a dee, titmouse, nuthatches raid the meal worms all day.
