Pine Warblers winter in the southern United States where they are found in other habitats or visit bird feeders.
Pine Warblers can also be an olive-green colour as you will see in tomorrow’s post.
Whoever makes a garden
Has never worked alone;
the rain has always found it,
The sun has always known. – Douglas Malloch (1877-1938)
