p.1 #1 · Worm-eating Warbler Family +1


Last weekend we went up to the mountains to do some birding with our local Audubon group. The first stop was an Ingles grocery store which happens to be one of the few places in Georgia that Willow Flycatchers breed. The birds are semi-famous, so this is one of the most birded parking lots in the state.

Male Willow Flycatcher - big crop


The main spot for the day was a forestry service road that went around a mountain. There we saw many types of warblers and other birds that breed there but not 80 miles south where we live. We had this encounter not too long after we started up the road. Coming over a hill, we saw an American Redstart being chased off by this pair of Worm-eating Warblers. When we got up to the birds they continued to scold us and flit about. We soon discovered that there were recently fledged young around which had the parents so agitated. We let them be after a few photos. An interesting experience for finally getting eyes on the species. I've heard them before, but they usually skulk around in the brush.

Mom - I think


Dad - ...I think


Baby - this one I'm sure of!


Thanks for looking!

A lovely set John. Great you got some shots of the warbler. The youngster looks a tad uncomfortable being out on his own in the relative open.

Thanks y'all. I wish it weren't a 2 hour drive up there - it's difficult to leave the house at 5:15am on the weekend
