YellowWarbler in the Tamarack tree for Mellow Yellow Monday


There's something yellow in our Tamarack Tree
What could it be?
Some sort of warbler visiting me.
grab my camera and my bird guide book,
Let's see
what can it be?
I am going to guess that this might be a first year, female, Wilson'''s Warbler using p-454 of David Sibley's[2000] The Sibley Guide to Birds as my reference guide. Any comments on this id would be appreciatedHaving no plans for mellow yellowMonday
This was a perfect surprise sightingfor us from our pantry window this morning while making my first cup of tea for the day.
And this is the second post in a row to feature our Tamarack Trees.

I wouldn't begin to know how to ID this one, but he is very pretty with that nice yellow and the rusty cap. Those Tamarack trees seem to be a good photo subject.
