Warblers are nearly impossible to attract to your yard. They don’t eat seeds, so they won’t visit bird feeders. They don’t nest in cavities, so they won’t stay in birdhouses. But they do love the insects that hang out in the buds of this Dogwood tree that blooms for only a few days in my backyard. But when the blossoms are gone, the birds are gone. They’re also tough to photograph if you do find them because they’re constantly on the move and they seldom come out in the open, preferring to hide amongst the brush. I spotted these Yellow Warblers and then also a Nashville Warbler which is a first for me.
