Wilson’s Warbler, Male


Welcome Back!

They’re here again.

In this case, “They” are the warblers that migrate into Orange County, CA, for the winter.

So we can welcome back these beautiful birds.

The bird in the photo is a Wilson’s Warbler, male. Notice that he has a shiny black cap. (The female has a muted dark cap.)

So if you see one, call out, “Welcome back!”

Much success,

Steve Kaye

    What a beautiful, yellow bird! I live in the SF Bay Area. I don’t think I’ve seen them around here before.

    I really appreciate these bird photos, since they may help me identify my own bird visitors.
