Mariton: Black-throated Blue Warbler
by Tim Burris, Preserve Manager
Black-throated Blue Warblers are moving through on their way back to wintering grounds in the West Indies. This is a fun little warbler in the fall. At this time, they are pretty curious, and often feed near eye level. I have often had them perch only a few feet away. The photo above was taken by a simple point and shoot camera to give you an idea about how closely they will approach humans.
I have also been seeing small flocks of Wood Thrushes in the deep woods. Sometimes they are with a flock of Robins, sometimes they are by themselves. I haven’t seen any of the winter Thrushes yet, but they should be arriving soon.
