Yellow-rumped Warblers

A stop at Salisbury Beach State Reservation this morning found a few dozen Yellow-rumped Warblers feeding along the road just out of the wind.

Bayberry, a favorite of these Warblers




The yellow rump - hence the name.


A late Rose-breasted Grosbeak was spending its time eating Cedar Berries when not being chased by the Northern Mockingbird that thought they were all his.


My Brother Dave who lives just off of Rte 1A in Beverly assisted with my Screech Owl addiction today, allowing me to place two boxes in his backyard. I've seen Screech Owls in the neighborhood and have high hopes for a nesting pair in these boxes next spring!
