Blogging from A-Z • V • Vermivora Cyanoptera

V is for Vermivora Cyanoptera or more commonly known as the blue-winged warbler.

Last year was the first year I laid eyes on a blue winged warbler.  I had never seen or heard of this species until one fine day in May of last year.  This bird treated me to good looks during its brief stay in Massachusetts, seemingly spending all of its time on one of three bushes, as that is where I saw him every time I hiked one of my regular trails.

Like many warblers, these birds are often heard before they are seen, and this blue winged warbler was no exception, heralding its own presence with his song.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you will join me tomorrow for the letter W.

Today's challenge earrings are a dangly crystal pair of earrings.  As a reminder, anyone who comments during the A-Z challenge will be entered in a drawing to win seven pairs of earrings.


  1. Those mouth-wide-open shots are fantastic!!! Sing, Little Yellow, Sing!!!

    Love the Bicone color you used in these earrings!

  2. Love the dangling earrings and the colour-perfect for summer. This bird is very pretty and looks like he was just told he has to work on Saturday:)

  3. So funny that two of the photos you shared are of them with their mouths open - lost in song!

  4. oh I love how you caught that guy in a full-throat-ed song!


Thank you for your comments!! They really mean a lot!
