Nature clicks #167 - Palm Warbler

Palm Warbler  

This photo is already three weeks old but because it was a first sighting for me I still like to show it here in the blog. This little guy was up on its way to Canada where they spend the summer and raise their young ones. They have the habit of tail-wagging which helps to identify this bird. Palm Warblers feed on the ground more than other warblers and eat mostly insects during the summer. The image was made at Mud Lake, a backwater lake connected to the Mississippi River. I hope you enjoy the rest of Memorial Day weekend. My German friends had all their May holidays already (3!!!) and should not be jealous that we have Monday off... ;-)
