Spot-the-Difference

Hmmmmm - I fear I might be getting a bit boring. A bit too birdy nerdy, perhaps? It seems that recently I have only posted photos of birds. Birds, birds and more birds. Admittedly, they are all very beautiful birds, but I fear I may be becoming a one-subject wonder. Or perhaps a one subject bore?

Oh well, since there doesn't seem to be much else happening in my life at the moment, I shall have to stick with the birds. Two gorgeous, but slightly different yellow-rumped warblers - can you spot the difference?

Audubon's warbler (Dendroica coronata auduboni)

Myrtle warbler (Dendroica coronata coronata)
On a positive note - I have unpacked 6 more boxes this week! I know, still unpacking boxes after being here for near-as-damn-it two years. I dare anyone to ask me how the renovations are going.........

Personally, I enjoy seeing all the birds. Great shots. How is the...

Not knowing much about birds, I would have to say it all boils down to confidence. Audubon's warbler is not the least concerned about the kitties, whereas Myrtle is keeping a wary eye on them. Justifiably so, as I think Myrtle is just about bite-sized!

But I may not have nailed it.

How are the renovations going, DBM? LOL!

That first warbler is one seriously beautiful bird! So no, not boring at all. I've never seen anything like either of them.

GREAT photos, too!

Oh...shoot! Jay beat me to it. I figured that since I'm at a safe distance I'd dare to ask you: how are the renovations going?

Beautiful birds they are. You are a great photographer. And, how's the hernia? (just read Jay's post, hence...)

Betty: Thank you for not asking.

Cortes: I don't really either of them would like my kitties!

Jay: Very funny - I am rolling on the floor, laughing......NOT!

Carolina: Oh, you two are just sooooo funny! The hernia is coming along nicely, thank you

Love the burst of yellow on both birds and their details are so beautifully by the black background!
