Bird Pic Of The Week

Cape May Warbler

(Dendroica tigrina)

Where: Richmond, VA • Glidewell Rd.

Notes: A few days ago, at the suggestion of my partner, I turned my attention from the local woodpeckers to fall migrants. That very same evening, a male American Redstart further persuaded me, when it visited our backyard water feature. So the next morning I was eager to set-up to photograph any visitors. There was no sign of the Redstart that day, but when this small yellow bird with prominent streaking appeared, I knew it was something special. I soon recognized this Neotropical migrant as a Cape May Warbler from its chestnut face-patch; which is much more prominent during breeding season. Cape Mays breed across the boreal forest of Canada and the northern United States. It stopped here for a drink and a splash on the way to its wintering grounds in the West Indies, where it uses its unique curled, semi-tubular tongue to collect nectar. Maybe I'll see it again in the spring, on its return trip.

THE BIRD SPA

The Birdbath Alternative • DIY Installation Instructions and Parts List

Birds, like all other animals, prefer habitats that meet all their basic survival needs: food, shelter and WATER! They depend on water to condition their feathers for flight, to help maintain their body temperature, for hydration, and for hygiene. A landscape with a consistent, clean running water source will attract both a greater number of species and a higher count of birds. This especially applies to the many migratory and insect-eating species too. The Bird Spa is a low maintenance water feature, designed specifically for birds. Has ATTRACTED 80 DIFFERENT SPECIES at a single location in central Virginia!
