  1. South Central Kentucky here.  Over the past month, Eastern Towhees and Indigo Buntings have been at my feeders.  Goldfinches are brightening up the scene too.  Yellow-rumped Warbers are about and today I spied (thanks to ID help) a Ruby-crowned Kinglet.  Hermit Thrush and Brown Thrashers too.  

  2. Thank you VRVan and Charlie for helping this old dog learn some new tricks.  😊  I've always loved watching birds and considered myself generally knowledgeable...until last year when I found this site.  lol.   I'm still working on my photography skills which I currently rate as "picture taker."  Last year, with the help of all you wonderful people at Whatbird , I was able to id nearly 70 different birds just taking walks on my street.  I live in the county and am surrounded by a combination of Woods and pastureland with ponds and everything in between all in a bend of the Barren River.  It's turned into a treasure hunt of sorts, trying to spot something new everyday.  And my life adventure is about to take a huge turn as I will soon be moving to the Piney Woods of NE Texas with a whole new list of treasure to discover.

    So, thanks again for the explanation and for helping this budding bird watcher expand her knowledge base....

  3. I took this today (same bird/2 pics).  When I pulled up images of yellow-rumped warbler, it also discussed the myrtle warbler.  So I was hoping someone could explain this to me.  Am I understanding correctly that there are multiple kinds of yrw, and this one is the myrtle variety?  Sorry if this is a silly question--I'm just trying to learn.  thanks1798756335_myrtletile.JPG.b9edba7e99a788605bc9b320eeb1e6f4.JPG
