Warblers 3 – Magnolia Warbler Juvenile

Another first-year bird, this time a Magnolia Warbler. I can’t tell if it’s male or female – the juveniles all look alike.

This one was quite friendly. Like the Black-Throated Green Warbler in the previous post, it enjoyed fluttering around in the brush from the tree my parents cut down. There must have been a lot of insects in the cut branches, because they kept coming back.

(Juvenile Magnolia Warblers, like almost all juvenile Warblers, are mostly grey and yellow, but they can be identified by the white eye-ring, which makes it look very bright-eyed, and by the incredibly faint grey necklace that runs across the yellow breast.)
