    Palm Warblers are all over South Florida this time of year.
  2. Palm Warbler

    Palm Warbler

    The reddish cap and yellow undertail coverts along with its characteristic tail pumping behavior help identify this species. A scarce migrant in Texas, their main migratory route is further east. There are two rather easily identified subspecies. The Eastern breeding "S. p. hypochrysea" (Yellow...

  5. Palm Warbler

    Palm Warbler

    The Palm Warbler has two rather easily identified subspecies. The Eastern breeding "S. p. hypochrysea" (Yellow Palm Warbler) winters on the Gulf Coast while the Western breeding "S. p. palmarum" winters in Florida and the Caribbean. Thus their migration routes crisscross with Eastern breeders...

    Thanks to all on the ID front! This little warbler was flitting about in the scrub on the banks of fresh-water Lake Hammonasset.
  7. Palm Warbler

    Palm Warbler

    This species was a scarce migrant in this area and this is the only one we saw. It appears to be a member of the nominate western subspecies which is duller than the eastern race. The reddish crown and yellow undertail coverts help identify this species along with its characteristic tail...

    I was fortunate enough to come upon this lifer during a recent visit to the Milwaukee area
  13. Palm warbler

    Palm warbler

    Normally plain looking and common warblers down here, they do become quite fetching when they get their yellow colors and rusty caps for breeding. They normally winter in our area in non-breeding form, but sometimes we get lucky when they first arrive or are just ready to leave, and have some...
  14. Palm Warbler

    Palm Warbler

    This species often forages on the ground pumping its tail like a pipit, but this one kept to the trees where it was determined to chase away any other birds that came near. This one shows characters of the nominate duller "Western" Palm Warbler, S. p. palmarum which normally winters in Florida...

    Palm Warbler

    October 5th must have been moving day. I saw several of these guys, some Chipping Sparrows, and some Yellow Rumped warblers flitting around the yard. That was the last day I saw any of them. Maybe they were all moving together on their way South for the winter.
  19. Palm Warbler

    Palm Warbler

    These guys are still around as of yesterday as well. The Palm Warblers and the Yellow Rumped Warblers seem to be the last warblers to leave in the fall.
  20. Palm Warbler

    Palm Warbler

    This is one of two Palm Warblers who seemed determined to take a bath, but kept getting chased off from the water pan by Starlings. I'd chase off the starlings, and the Warblers would come back. Eventually they got to take a nice enjoyable bath with no interruptions, then went on their way.
