In my previous post I was bemoaning the fact that, during our time at High Island, I didn't get good looks at the two Blackburnian Warblers that I saw . I know that I shouldn't complain, given that I saw 11 warbler species and birds of several other species also. But I do love Blackburnians.

Well, guess what happened when I did a quick walk around the CyFair campus nature trail on Wednesday. That's right, a Blackburnian Warbler appeared. And not only did he appear, but he stayed in clear view for several minutes. 

Now that's what I call serendipity!

A wonderful little bird to see.

Beautiful! Wonder if this could be the little "yellow" birds hubby has seen at our house? Right by Big Thicket National Perserve.

I think it's the most beautiful of all the warblers. It's very definitely orange rather than yellow, though. In fact, it's almost luminous orange.
