Black and white warblers are hard to get. They stay close to the trunk in the shade.
Downy woodpeckers usually let you get pretty close.
Yellow throated warblers always stay up high. This one was hiding under a palm leaf.
I’m not sure what this one is just from this picture. Looks a little light underneath to be a palm warbler but too pale to be a pine warbler (which was reported in this area).
A female black and white warbler. She was curious, checking me out (or probably looking for a handout).
Blue-gray gnatcatcher with a tiny bug.
Female red-winged blackbirds are pretty. They have just a little bit of peach around the face.
A little blue heron in the middle of a pond.
You could just barely see the great blue heron sitting on the nest high up in the pine tree. So far the last 2 years they haven’t had babies here.
All the way across the lake, I could see the eagle couple up in a tree.

Hello, Dina! Pretty collection of birds and images. I love all the warblers. The Little Blue is a favorite too. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!
I especially like the Heron.
Amazing shots! The closeups are wonderful!
