Around the first of November I was watching a large number of American Goldfinches at my feeders. One of them looked a little strange so I started photographing it. When I first noticed it had just gotten out of the bird bath. Upon closer inspection it clearly wasn’t a goldfinch. I finally thought I had identified it as a Ruby-crowned Kinglet in an earlier post. However, an alert reader correctly identified it as a Pine Warbler.  It was the first one that I’ve ever seen at my bird feeder.  Apparently it was migrating through. It stayed around for several weeks feeding on suet. It was still around for the first snowfall but the next day it was gone.

  1. Great shots!

  2. Thanks for posting this! I saw a few at the International Crane Foundation in October and thought they were Goldfinches getting winter plumage. They were rather far away so was doing a bit of pixel peeping. I was going to check I-Bird later but never got around to it.
