Yellow Warblers Migrating

Posted on Aug 29, 2013

Have you seen any Yellow Warblers at your home? These beautiful little birds will soon be out of the Jamestown area as they and other species are migrating south. They love to nest and stop over in yards and gardens during migration.


We have seen several Yellow Warblers this week at RTPI in our gardens along with birds like Chestnut-sided Warblers, Baltimore Orioles, Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, Blue-winged Warblers, Great Crested Flycatchers, American Redstarts, and more. Ruby-throated Hummingbirds have been pushing through in large numbers and using our feeders. The feeder area also attracted a spectacularly crisp adult male Hooded Warbler and a female Magnolia Warbler a few days ago. While they did not take anything they had to check out what all the commotion was about. On the other hand we still have a House Wren pair that is using one of our nest boxes and feeding nestlings. They will be September migrants.

What have you seen in your yard lately? If you stop by to visit us please walk around and let us know what you find!
