January 1, 2011 Pine Warbler still doing well.

Happy New Year!

The overwintering Pine Warbler is still surviving and appears in good condition. It regularly feeder at the suet cake. There are only a couple of January records for the Ottawa-Gatineau District for this warbler. Most individuals disappear once the extreme cold winter sets into the region.

This brightly plumage male Pine Warbler is surviving on a diet suet.

The Pine Warbler is one of only a few warbler species to attempt overwintering in eastern Ontario. Other species include Ovenbird, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Common Yellowthroat, Yellow-throated Warbler and Black-throated Green Warbler.
