The black-throated blue warbler is a small bird of the warbler family. Its breeding ranges are located in the interior of deciduous and mixed coniferous forests in eastern North America. Over the cooler months, it migrates to islands in the Caribbean and Central America. The adult male has a black face and cheeks, deep blue upperparts and white underparts, while the adult female is olive-brown above and light yellow below. Predominantly insectivorous, the black-throated blue warbler supplements its diet with berries and seeds in winter.
Sitting at my kitchen table facing a window that looks out onto a small tree I thought I spotted a flash of blue the other day. I grabbed the camera, stood on a chair and hung out the top half of the window in order to capture a few shots of the flash of blue flitting from branch to branch eating the berries. My patience paid off as I was able to get a few and then he actually headed for the ground under the tree allowing me to get more shots as he wrestled with a berry. I was also able to capture his lady friend, though not as clearly, but it was still a thrill to see the pair of them.
