    We will be reporting our birds to Cornell this week, but this one showed up at the suet feeder and we can't identify it. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Warbler b.jpg Warbler c.jpg

    It looks like a warbler sort at first glance.

    Yes, it is a warbler--a Tennessee Warbler! Thanks to Sjoerd, Mart, and Toni for helping. We ended up sending a picture to an ornithologist at Texas A&M who identified it for us. He is a very nice man, even bothered to phone us to make sure we got his e-mail in time for reporting.
    And Gail, he agreed that was a good photo and asked if he could use it in lectures!

    Super ! And what an honour, Jane. That is really nice for you and your man. Chapeau.
    I saw on that Wikipaedia page the term--LBJs. We use that term here as well...but here it is KBV-tjes (small brown birds).
    Glad that you could discover which species it was. We have warbler sorts over in Europe as well. They are in woods and in reed lands.

    Sjoerd I would have never thought of a Warbler being around here if you hadn't mentioned them. I have to start looking closely at the birds we get here in case one of them gets blown off course enough to show up in my yard.

    Jane, congrats on the photo being used in presentations!!!
