Bird Pic Of The Week

Pine Warbler

(Setophaga pinus)

Where: Richmond, VA • Glidewell Rd.

Notes: Perhaps this is not the best setting to illustrate the coming of the end of winter, as another blast of chill and snow blankets the mid-Atlantic…again. Several times in the days preceding this photo, I heard a high-pitched trill of a song calling from the backyard. I assumed it was the Juncos starting to sing a little before they return to the north and higher elevations to breed. After all they are nicknamed “Snowbirds”. So, I was very surprised to look up and see this small bird perched on the edge of the icy birdbath. It was like a glowing yellow pingpong ball contrasting against the bright white snow and ice. It dipped its beak down into the water and had a sip or two before departing. Perhaps spring is not too far off after all.

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. Over seventy-five plus species attracted at a single location in central Virginia.
