Blue-winged Warbler

I took a drive over to the Ipswich River with my gear to get some fresh air and sunshine on Sunday.  I found these exquisite tiny violets.

I could hear Green-throated Warblers as I walked up the trail. A Black-and-white warbler popped out briefly. Then my hart skipped a beat. It’s a male Blue-winged Warbler!

A few minutes later, a female appeared in the brush.

After the warbler party left, I went up the trail to a meadow. On the return, I found another Blue-winged Warbler in a beech tree.

Another SWEET find Steve and certainly a new warbler species for me.

The violets are lovely and so dainty looking. What sweet birds, love their yellow feathers.
