Ring-necked Pheasant and Nashville Warbler

December 06, 2020

Several years ago a male Ring-necked Pheasant took to jumping onto our deck railing. This was during the killer winter of the flash freezes that resulted in the deaths of so many animals, all sentient creatures. The prodgeny of this original very bold and hungry pheasant have continued the tradition no doubt by example. We have at times three males and three females on the railing.

We also had a visit from an unusual and very rare warbler, a Nashville Warbler (super dumb name). This bird has a trill that can be tricky to learn especially where there are similar sounding trillers. The two or three part trill can be helpful. Its a hard bird to photograph not because its shy but because it tends to sing from tall tree tops. The one I photographed was a quick snap shot through glass.
