More feathered friends

I’ve done a couple of avian posts before (here for example), but I think these are my best photos yet!  Let me know if you like them!

Grey Catbird (Dumatella carolinensis)

Their “meow” is worse than their bite!

Checking for fat.

Female Common Yellowthroat (Geothlypis trichas)

Show-off

Female Common Yellowthroat

Wood Thrush head (Hylocichla mustelina)

Wood Thrush and bird

Wilson’s Warbler (Wilsonia pusilla)

Does this spring plumage make me look fat?

This is my good side.

Magnolia Warbler (Setophaga magnolia)

Brooding

Male Common Yellowthroat

Either a Willow or Least Flycatcher (Empidonax sp.)

What are you little bird? Not telling.

So undignified.

Red eyed Vireo (Vireo olivaceus)

How about this side?
