A Black and White Warbler for Worldbird Wednesday



Its as if this little warbler is saying,"Hello there!" and my reply would be. "How nice to see you again, Its been a long time" I have seen black and white warblers in our yard before but not often. Its such a visually lovely little bird with its crisp black and white stripes. Its naming is obvious isn't it? although I wonder if I showed it to my grandchildren if they might call it a zebra bird. Its so delightful!


I checked my blog archives and found a previous posting of a black and white warbler sighting on July 10th, 2008. The timing of their appearance coincides. There are a couple of identifying characteristic tips in this post found at:http://naturetales.blogspot.com/2008/07/black-and-white-warbler.html

See the white stripe down the center of its head in the photo above?!

I love how the Black and White Warbler climbs around a tree just like a Nuthatch. Fabulous captures!
