Frontera's Feeders On a Cloudy Afternoon 2/27

Most woodland birds are hard to see, either in the treetops, brush or on the ground. But feeders are easy pickings for these birds. The feeders attract both birds and birders. Usually the Long-billed Thrasher is thrashing in the undergrowth turning the litter over looking for food. So it seems secretive. This Thrasher came to the feeder at Frontera many times.  In the first photo the Long-billed pretended that we really were not watching for him posed with our cameras.  We were also trying to ignore the distracting photographers.

Nashville Warblers are usually seen high in the treetops.  
A few rusty brown feathers are starting to show on the crown of this male.
