The Warblers are Back!
The sure sign that my favorite season of the year has come again: The return of the wood warblers to their SoCal wintering grounds.
I just went out on my walk and debated about should I take my camera, but left it at home to my regret. As I turned the last corner before arriving home, I heard a familiar winter call, I looked up and had to wait a bit before the local wintering warbler gem came into view: the Townsend's Warbler. The bird hopped around the branches of a magnolia tree picking off insects and came within seven feet of me. Dang for leaving my camera at home, but joy in the turning of the season and such a delightful little fellow(ess).
