I love the songs of the warblers and the brightness of their feathers in the midst of winter. Their sunny yellow plumage can brighten up a cold cloudy day.

I’m pretty sure this is a pine warbler which spends its winters here in the southern part of Louisiana or at least is more visible during this time of year. Like its name suggests, the pine warbler likes to stay near piney woods since it searches for tiny insects in clusters of pine needles and pine cones. During the non-mating season, it tends to join the company of Eastern bluebirds and chipping sparrows. From personal observation, I know for a fact that the pine warbler LOVES peanut butter suet as it comes regularly to my feeders for its addictive fix of the gooey treat.
