We're approaching the peak of spring bird migration in the Austin area, and for the past week I've been hearing and seeing one of our most common migrating songbirds, the Nashville Warbler. Despite the name, these birds winter in Mexico and breed way up north in the boreal forest of Canada. We only get to see them (and hear them) while they're passing through. Here's a photo I got of one in my backyard almost exactly 2 years ago. It shows the yellow breast and belly, yellow throat, grey cheeks and head, and bright white eye-ring that identify this tiny bird. Look and listen for them in our trees the next time you're out!
