Another sure sign of spring !!!

Of all the yellow yellow birds that show up every spring, the prettiest bumch are the Warbler species. They begin arriving about mid-March and continue through nesing in June. The Yellow-rumped warbler may stay all winter in NW Arkansas. By late March and early April, I begin to see Pine Warblers, Common Yellowthroats, Back and White Warblers, and American Redstarts, and Yellow Throated warblers, in mixed migrating groups. They are in molt at the time they arrive and don’t get their full striking colors until later in the spring.

Below is the 2nd Warbler species I have seen in 2013, the Pine Warbler:
