Great shots all.

Rocco, this is a lifer for sure but don't know what it is. Hopefully there is enough to identify. This is the best angle I got. He was pretty high up and only went higher and further into the leaves. I think it is some type of Warbler.

could be a couple things. if it was long-tailed, i like blue-gray gnatcatcher. if it was short tailed, it could have been a tennessee warbler, but i like gnatcatcher better overall.

Nice warbler shots all!

 

Rick - Looks a bit like the Great Crested Flycatcher I saw there yesterday, but the chest on your bird looks more white than yellow.  

 

Both of these birds were on the Gunpowder River this morning..

Common Yellowthroat

Thanks Rocco. I never saw the tail, but I'll look at some of the other shots to see if i got anything.

You guys have been knocking it out of the park!

 

Went out to give the orioles more jelly and there were so many around I couldn't count them. We are having to reload to feeders twice a day. An Orchard couple and Baltimore's galore.

Brown thrasher, female redstart, Canadian warbler, magnolia warbler, red tail hawk, blue wing warbler.

 

Totally blew it with my settings today :freak:

Should have had much better pics of the Canadian, redstart male, and a Tennessee warbler.

Still a rookie.

You literally give the birds jelly?  Never heard of that.  Tell me more......

If you end up going this route hanging jelly is the way to go. No squirrels, ants etc.

 

I use to use an upside down old glass icecream cup for its look but as you can see...
