Butter Butts


Holy Yellow-rumped Warblers (butter butts) everywhere! Everywhere. (okay, not the most exciting warbler, I'll admit) Good mix of Myrtle and Audubon's but the Myrtles were the ones who posed for me the other day. Palm Warbler (last photo) too (not the best photo, but glad to see that around).. SOOC, Bird Photography Weekly, My World

Very pretty. I wish we had more cute birds. I shell out tons for feed but no one seems to care. All I have is one well-fed little finch.

These are great photos of these birds. Don't have them around here. I do believe this is the first time I've seen them.

Pat said...

When I first glanced at your title, I thought it said "Better Butts." lol! Very cute little birds, these Butter Butts.

Rinkly Rimes said...

I could only see the Yellow Rump clearly on the final lovely little bird, but all the photos are beautifully shot.

Jane said...

Some beautiful series of shots, Jill:)

All warblers are exciting! Butter butts were the first warblers I ever ID-ed, so I think they are great!

amazing bird photos...love it

Wren said...

One can never have too many warblers, but apparently warblers can have to many photographers. The bird in the first photo looks like he's about to have words with you!

Kristin said...

Birds are amazing creatures. They always represent peace and freedom.

Lovely shots of the birds. Nice name you have for it too. Not easy to snap photos of them as they easily fly away especially when we are close.
