The Gunflint Melodist
This bird here is a yellow warbler. Yellow Warblers are abundant across the America's; they winter in Latin America and migrate north for breeding during the spring and summer. I spotted this one on a drive through the Gunflint Trail in northern Minnesota. On an different note, I will be heading north to Canada in a day for a family reunion with my Canadian family in Newfoundland, so I look forward to posting new landscape and wildlife images from my trip! -
Bird life up here in Michigan is bustling. I could hardly decide which ones to paint on this piece, but went with Song Sparrow, Yellow Warbler, Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Baltimore Oriole, and Cedar Waxwing.

#ChickPicotheDay ! (Day 2,754)
This egg yolk coloured male Yellow Warbler eluded me for quite some time. I followed it singing along the banks of a canal. Occasionally it would make a microsecond appearance, this is one of those times. I just think they're adorable, don't you? I also read that they fly non-stop across the Gulf of Mexico to reach their migration destination. Cool bird, cool song.
