CELERY FARM: First wave of warblers



After trying to photograph some warblers yesterday, I have newfound respect for photographers. The were a yellow-rump and a palm warbler by the Warden's watch -- the first good looks I had this year -- but they wouImg_0009ld not sit still for a picture.
   I like yellow-rumps and palms because they are among the easiest warblers to ID.
   The yellow rump has -- you guessed it.
   And the palm warbler has a twitchy rump.
   When the more exotic warblers arrive  over the next few weeks, I will probably be a tad annoyed when I see so many yellow rumps instead.
   But for now, they are harbingers of amazing little birds to come.
