1410 Oakwood Yellow Warbler

There are realistically three Warblers that nest in the area, the American Redstart, Common Yellowthroat and the Yellow Warbler. They all nest in the local parks - Brian Plath estimates a hundred Yellows at Big Island State Park and nice numbers of Redstarts. So why not in our 1410 Oakwood yard? Why? Why? This late afternoon this male Yellow Warbler showed up at our water feature- Oakwood Creek. 

I assume his mate is on their nest somewhere. We will see as the season goes on. Stay tuned.

If they bring their young to the nest or it comes with a female, then they can't be too far away. They're ground nesters, so they enough thickets to feel safe.
