Spring Migrants

While on a recent look along the river while checking to see if the American Dipper was still around ( it is ) I found these two new birds for the year.
A Myrtle race Yellow-rumped Warbler & a Hermit Thrush.
I was wondering when they'd show up and now, more should start appearing every day...

Yellow-rumped Warbler

You certainly have some interesting birds over there Nick.
The Yellow-rumped Warbler is a beauty, with that gold blaze.

Your photos are lovely. I really like your Yellow-rumped Warbler. I saw our last Hermit Thrush on Saturday. He was probably getting ready to head north that evening!

You have a couple of beautiful photos here on this post. Nice to see them for the first time.

Oops (multitasking failure!) I meant to say the Hermit Thrush. I can rarely even spot these guys with the binoculars let alone capture an image with the camera! Well done!

Both of these birds have just recently arrived at our place.
