Then we saw ruby-crowned kinglets, hovering, flitting, and feasting. They are so tiny and beautiful - we didn't see a single "ruby crown!"
The warblers are so confusing, especially in the fall. I think this is an immature magnolia warbler - it has the white eyering, 2 white wingbars, and the white band on the tail. It was beautiful.
Another guess - All I can figure is that this is female black-throated blue warbler. It has the white line over the eye and white under the eye, and the little white spot on the wing. It was definitely the right colors.
Right after we got home, this guy came to the feeder...it's the first red-breasted nuthatch I've seen around here!
