The juveniles seem to make up the most numbers, flitting through the spruce, birch and hazelnut shrubs. I enjoy watching these flocks of subdued beauties, as they feed for their long trip south.
Here are some images of birds that are here this month of August.
Black-throated Green Warbler
Black and white Warbler
Juvenile Cedar Waxwing
Thankfully the little Black-capped Chickadee is with me year around.
These next three photos are birds that arrive in my Jonvick Creek each year.
A pretty little Nashville through filtered leaf light.
The White-throated Sparrow is one of my favorite birds that follows me each day and eats sunflower seeds by my feet.
The Wilson's Warbler is a rare sighting each year.
I will see many of these birds into September. I always hope for a long, extended fall every year; for it is a long time until they return in April.
