The tree lines around Magnolia Plantation are active with small birds going about their business.
These Yellow-rumped Warblers have a chirpy song that gives you a hint where to look, but they don’t stay in one place for long and I didn’t get any good shots of the patch of yellow on their rump.
They seem oblivious to the herons, egrets and other water birds carrying on in the pond just to the edge of these trees.
This time of year before the trees leaf out is likely the best chance to photograph them.
