Pete has been hearing a bird in our neighborhood for the last several days. I finally got to see the little guy, sitting in the silver maple across the street. What a beautiful creature! All yellow with dark wings. Of course, the lovely crooner wouldn’t turn around so we could see his face.
Pete thought it was a blue-winged warbler. The pictures I found on the web sure looked like that bird, but when I listened to the song on the Cornell Lab of Ornithology site, it didn’t sound the same. I know that many birds have more than one call, so that might be the case here. Pete is pretty sure he’s got this one right.
Here’s sound recording of the bird; it’s not the best quality (okay, it’s sort of bad), but it’s the only bird singing that you can hear.
Can anyone confirm our identification?
Until next time!
