The yellow I'm seeing is not sunshine, I can tell you that! The high is 12C today and the low 4C. It was a bit of a dreary day...but lightened up when I caught a glimpse of yellow in the cherry tree. Whatever could it be?
Apparently it is a Wilson's Warbler. They are the flittingist little feathered creatures to capture on camera. However I did manage to get a couple of decent shots.
See its eye peeking through the leaves? Is there a glint in that one, too, like the previous post of the Towhee?
A few more photos showing its black cap which indicates it is a male and also distinguishes it from the Yellow Warbler.
Other splashes of yellow in the garden:
I'm not quite finished with birds yet, although this one wasn't yellow! Yesterday I was sitting in the front room when I heard a cooing sound echoing quite clearly. After going outside and looking up on my roof...I could see the echo was coming down the chimney!
We don't usually have pigeons or doves around here, but I've seen some flying around the neighbourhood lately.
Oh, look who just dropped by! It's the Yellow-rumped Warbler. Guess he didn't want to be left out of this 'yellow' post. I must say, ever since I've played around with him and Photoshop (see header), he's been giving me some particularly odd looks - as if he's daring me to try it again ;)
Sunshine is promised for tomorrow with a high of 17C, before turning back to rainy days!
