A Day in the Life of Butyl Creek

A Day in the Life of Butyl Creek

posted April 26, 2024 from Seattle, WA

The migration is up and running. On April 26 Delia and I were home and we had the tripod set up so I could get photos of the birds that came in for a bath.

I still missed many, including Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Steller’s Jay (nonmigratory) and Robin (nonmigratory more or less).

It was very difficult to count the number of Yellow-rumped Warblers we had. On the 24th we estimated 45, on this day it seemed similar and Delia is again estimating 45 but is calling the estimate conservative, saying:. “Groups of YRWA came in throughout the morning and day, sometimes as many as 8 to 10 at a time,”

Here is an Orange-crowned Warbler and a Yellow-rumped.

This male Yellow Warbler was way early as they usually show up later, in May.

This Wilson’s Warbler was one of about two today.

An Orange-crowned Warbler is finished bathing. Bathing normally is about the only time you see the Orange Crown on this bird, as under normal conditions the orange is hidden under the olive-green feathers of the head.

Hermit Thrush.

Lincoln’s Sparrow.

Golden-crowned Sparrows.

Dark-eyed Junco.

We’re pretty sure this White-thraoted Sparrow is a different individual from the one who spent the winter.
