Palm Warbler Watch
What a wonder
Winging your way
When winter warns
Wisdom of the wild
Wends her way south
Where warm winds waft
Whispers in wooded wetlands
While you ply weeds for worm or wasp
Welcome whimsical tail waggler
We wish you would wait a while with us
Worthy wee warbler
Note: As a Florida resident, I have grown fond of the autumnal return of Palm Warblers from their summer breeding grounds in Canada’s eastern sphagnum bogs. They arrive suddenly in droves enlivening our parks and wild places with their small quick bodies, constant tail bobbing, and high “check-check” calls. Never seeming to rest, they busy themselves with amazing insect procurement skills. I have often seen them catch insects in mid-air. Photographing them can be a challenge, but it’s one I enjoy. I found this little bird at Pahayokee Overlook in Everglades National Park.
Lovely poem and picture! I, too, enjoy the antics of the birds.

So glad you enjoyed this post. Happy birdwatching and blessings to you, too!
Oh, a bird I have never seen. He must fly right past me up here by a great lake. Your words paint a picture of a quick, ever moving soul.
