I photographed this Orange Crowned Warbler on 28 September 2014 in Palo Duro Canyon State Park. Not brilliantly colored, these cute little birds forage in dense, low brush. They will even visit backyard feeders for suet, peanut butter, and sugar water. Their Orange Crown streak is rarely seen, so I consider myself lucky to see a bit of it in these photos. It has a thin, sharply-pointed bill, short wings, and a short/squared tail.
This blog is intended to show the wide variety of birds we have coming, going, and residing in the Texas Panhandle. I consider it a challenge to personally photograph as many species and varieties of birds in the panhandle as I can as I go about my life. I will try to make entries as accurate as possible. I am a photographer, not a bird expert. Please feel free to correct me if any information I put here is in error. This is a work in progress. Enjoy our birds as I enjoy photographing them.
