A Few Fall Warblers

Warblers, the jewels of breeding birds in the Northeast, are on the move, heading back home to the tropics for winter.

Blackpoll Warblers make one of the most impressive migratory journeys. They gather along the New England coast, then fly 3000 kilometers nonstop across the western Atlantic Ocean to northeastern South America.

Beautiful pictures. We get more hawks here than warblers in the fall. Spring is our warbler time.

...the last photo of the Chestnut-sided Warbler is precious--love the posture and the eye/bill angle! I just spent some time with one a few days ago on the Little Miami River trail. (All the photos are wonderful--as usual!)

Lovely photos, Chris. Did you take them from a blind or were you out in the open? As Kelly and Dawn mentioned, that last shot is the most compelling. :-)
