Officially closed up a my fourth season of bird work at Hubbard Brook. The Blues proved to be just as charming to watch, just as rewarding to follow, and just as frustrating to catch. 😅 Goodbye White Mountains, until I see you again ... ... . . . #fieldtechlife #hubbardbrookexperimentalforest #BTBW #blackthroatedbluewarbler #whitemountains #bittersweet #untilnexttime #sunset
Woohoo! My first ever batch of warbler pins is done and ready! They'll come on these simple little backings (I repurposed some earring backings gifted to me by Jill of Liztech!). Each one was made using my mold-making and casting kit from @smoothon ! And the mold is still ready to go after 15 castings (I stole #15 , the Cape May for myself!) These guys will make their debut at the American Birding Expo next month! Snatch one up before they migrate south for the winter! #americanbirdingexpo #warbler #pin #audubon #audubonpa #birdsofinstagram #birdsinart #baybreastedwarbler #goldenwingedwarbler #yellowrumpedwarbler #BlackandWhiteWarbler #ceruleanwarbler #chestnutsidedwarbler #yellowwarbler #commonyellowthroat #hoodedwarbler #redstart #blackthroatedbluewarbler #northernparula #magnoliawarbler #blackburnianwarbler #poconos
I normally paint pet portraits (@savedgepetportraits ) but will post my other art here ! Birds and flowers are my favorite things to paint ! Brings me peace 😌. I do love painting pets and Viking themed art as well but feel most confident in birds. #birdpainting #birdsofinstagram #blackthroatedbluewarbler #flowerpainting #gouache #watercolor #watercolorpainting #watercolorart
Finally finished with a little project I've been working on for myself 😌. I'm running on very little sleep and have been staring at my phone too long to know if my editing is any good tonight. Anyways, I really enjoy painting birds, the act brings me peace ❤️ #birdsofinstagram #blackthroatedbluewarbler #birdpainting #painting #watercolor #gouache
Good evening, everyone! This is Jonn from @ohiobirdnerds , and I’m thrilled to be taking over @audubonpa this week! I’ll be sharing photos that span my early days to the present, each one followed by a brief retelling of the capture. I’ve chosen to end the week with my spark bird, the Black-throated Blue Warbler. This handsome fellow was seen in Spring 2017 at Magee Marsh. My lifer was in May 2013, on the estate of Edna St. Vincent Millay. I was there as part of a residency program (I’m a composer by trade), and took to exploring the grounds during the day. Migration in upstate New York overtook me. As soon as I saw this bird, everything changed! Thanks again to @audubonpa for the opportunity to take over this week, and thanks to all of you who took the time to like and comment on these photos! I’m grateful for the opportunity to share with you all! #blackthroatedbluewarbler #jjactakeover #yearofthebird
Black Throated Blue Warbler One of my favourite little warblers. This fellow would not stay still for long! #blackthroatedbluewarbler #warbler #fullofenergy #bird #avianadesigns #blackthroated #ilovebirds
Not so vibrant colors on a Black-throated Gray Warbler. One of my 4 lifers I’ve got this summer so far. #warbler #birdphotography #birding #birdwatching #saltycatamaran #blackthroatedbluewarbler
Finished my biggest crochet project ever - a Black-throated Blue Warbler blanket for @woodwarblers ! 1.8 miles of yarn makes for an adorable (and cozy!) blanket. #crochet #c2ccrochet #warbler #birdart #blackthroatedbluewarbler #crochetblanket #somuchyarn
@woodwarblers is on a hunt for nests in the hobblebush! Today was banding day for this brood of Black-throated Blue Warbler chicks. Kim is leading the #Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center's BTBW project in New Hampshire this year, and I'm tagging along for the week. Nesting season is almost over, but there's still a few nests left. #birdbanding #fieldwork #nestling #womeninscience #blackthroatedbluewarbler #BTBW #hobblebush #birds #birdresearch
"Handsome Lil' Feller"-- this little #BlackThroatedBlueWarbler has a cool and subdued summer song that sounds like "please, please, please, please, meeeeee". His midnight blue back, black throat and white belly give it a distinctive appearance.

Black-throated blue warbler from late June. Apparently I missed #lgbtstemday 🏳️‍🌈🌈 ...by like a lot #lgbtqia #blackthroatedbluewarbler
Season is starting to wind down, but an important part of the birds' annual cycle is just starting up -- molt! In the fall adult songbirds replace all their feathers before migrating to rheornqintering grounds. I caught this male today and found he was molting his primary feathers [last image]. See the contrast in the dull, greenish, pointed juvenile feathers and the new growing adult feathers which are dark, blueish, and broad? This male also was given a geolocator to carry on migration to track his travels too! . . . #fieldtechlife #birdresearch #birdbanding #targetnetting #mistnetting #BTBW #blackthroatedbluewarbler #geolocator #migration #migratoryconnectivity #molt #hubbardbrookexperimentalforest #longtermresearch
The Black-throated-Blue Warbler. Another one of the colorful May Migrants passing through NY! 🐦 You will be likely to see this one in Central Park in the spring - along with many other birders in the Park with their binoculars pointed into the trees 😊. We typically don’t have many colorful birds (compared to the tropics) so I think that’s one of the draws of these tiny fellows passing through! -#blackthroatedbluewarbler #centralpark #birdphotography #birdnerds #birding #travelcouple #naturelovers #picoftheday #springwatch #springmigration #warblermigration #blackthroatedblue #beautifulbird
Did you know the Black-throated Blue Warblers build their nest in the dense understory of mature hardwood forests? On average their nests are built only 1 to 1.5 metres from the ground!

Black Throated Blue Warbler
Happy #lgbtstemday to all you #LGBT ornithologists and #STEM scientists! I banded this lady Black-throated Blue Warbler as "GAYR" today. She also sings sometimes, which is usually a male characteristic. Let's celebrate diversity in our community and the natural world as well! . . . #pride #birdbanding #targetnetting #BTBW #blackthroatedbluewarbler #hubbardbrookexperimentalforest #research #birdresearch #colorbands
SO. Trying something a little different. My editing processes have been needlessly complicated, I think, and I’m trying to slim down. Long story short, I’ve been using Lightroom on my desktop, but discovered the mobile app today. The free version includes everything I’m used to using, so I’m not sure what I’m missing out on with premium. Anyway, directly editing on the phone seems way more streamlined, but maybe runs the risk of looking unauthentic? Still getting oriented. What do you use? What do you find works best? Tips appreciated! TIA! As a model, I found another shot of a female Black-throated Blue Warbler from May 💙🖤💙🖤 #blackthroatedbluewarbler #birdfreaks #birdsofinstagram #bird_brilliance #bestbirdshots #best_birds_of_ig #best_birds_of_world #bb_of_ig #Eye_Spy_Birds #fleeingbirds #feather_perfection #ip_birds #kings_birds #nuts_about_birds #planetbirds #Pocket_Birds #sassy_birds #thebirdingsquad #total_birds #your_best_birds
Recovered another geolocator we deployed last year! This male "PAWO" returned to the same territory he held last year, when we gave him a geolocator backpack to wear. This small device holds data which will help us determine migratory connectivity between breeding and wintering grounds, as well as migration timing! One bird, so much data. . . . #fieldtechlife #geolocator #BTBW #blackthroatedbluewarbler #birdbackpack #birdbanding #hubbardbrookexperimentalforest #research #birdresearch #migration
Black-throated Blue Warbler gives us Bird Glamour in royal blue and black! This New World warbler nests in hardwood forests like maples in eastern North America! It is a climate change-threatened species: Audubon's models show that its summer range will shift 100% and decrease by 78% by 2080! #BirdGlamour #eyemakeup #cosmeticsandconservation #climatechange #warblers #blackthroatedbluewarbler #habitat
12 months ago I caught and banded a Black-throated Blue Warbler, nicknamed YABK, and gave him a small backpack to wear. This tiny pack is a geolocator that measures light intensity and the time. From these data, we can estimate geographic locations! After I put it on him, he had a successful breeding season, migrated to his wintering grounds, migrated back this spring, and now has a nest full of nestlings. Today I recaught him a couple hundred meters from where I caught him last year and removed his geolocator. Hopefully his tiny pack is full of data so we can see where and how he traveled this last winter! . . . #fieldtechlife #research #researchinaction #womenwhoscience #womenofstem #BTBW #blackthroatedbluewarbler #birdbackpack #birdbanding #geolocator #migration #longdistance #hellooldfriend #hubbardbrookexperimentalforest
Here is my little oil painting, “Sense of Wander” for the Invitation to Travel group show in July at @wowxwow_art .

Can you make out the growth bars on this #blackthroatedbluewarbler ? I'm running a pilot study investigating whether growth bars can be used as proxies for carryover effects of fall molt on the following breeding season in Blues. Will birds with smaller bar widths [slower molt] arrive earlier, have better productivity, or better overall condition? I'll have to quantify a lot of bars first to see! 😅 . . . #fieldtechlife #BTBW #growthbars #molt #pilotstudy #molt #birdbanding #research #feathers #ptilochronology #carryovereffect
This #blackthroatedbluewarbler was one of many singing high on the bluffs today in #malcolmbluff #lowerbrucepeninsula
Just out hiking around. #optoutside #movebyfoote #hikeupstateny #hikeupstatenytrails 😊😎😃❤ Hearing a lot of #winterwren #blackthroatedgreenwarbler #blackthroatedbluewarbler and even a #blackpollwarbler and so much more. 😁
Finally figured out how to make this post go thru correctly. My apologies if you’ve been fed this video multiple times🙏🏻 Here we finally have the @cobra_man_ soundtrack! Filmed by @tom_dull.

A male Black throated Green Warbler was hanging out on the trail by West Quoddy Head light yesterday on our hike to the bog.

Plot is getting pretty nesty, most of our females are laying or incubating now. This lady is incubating her first every clutch! When I caught her I noticed she had adventitiously replaced [replaced outside a normal sequence] a tail feather! If you look at the 4th tail feather from the right, you'll see it is blacker, less tapered at the tip, and has a bluer edge. This molt limit helped me age this bird as a second-year, as the tapered, duller, greener feathers are a younger trait, contrasting with the newer replaced feather. . . . #fieldtechlife #birdbanding #moltlimit #molt #BTBW #blackthroatedbluewarbler #hubbardbrookexperimentalforest #research
Black-throated Blue Warbler
Caught this special female today: This lady was missing one of her color bands, so we could not confirm who she was with just binoculars. When I caught her today and read the number on her USGS band, I found out she was a pretty special bird! This lady was banded on the same plot back in 2013 as an after second year [ASY]. This makes her at least 7 years old, maybe even older! The longevity records for Blues are around 10yrs globally, but averaging less than 5 on this project. Keep it up, lady! Banding allows us to keep specific records, and also follow birds thought their life. We know how many nests this lady built, now many chicks she fledged, how much she fed her nestlings, and the genetics of her offspring all from the longterm work on the site. And these records over multiple years, under different weather conditions, food abundances, and predator pressures allow for some great insights into the plasticity of these birds' biology. . . . #fieldtechlife #birdbanding #BTBW #btbw #blackthroatedbluewarbler #colorbands #recap #prettylady #birdsofinstagram #research #longtermresearch #womenofstem #womenwhoscience #hubbardbrookexperimentalforest
So. Many. Unbanded. Birds. But this dude, named OAOO [orange, aluminum, orange, orange], makes one less. Slowly but surely. . . . #birdsofinstagram #birdbanding #fieldtechlife #nestsearching #research #longtermresearch #BTBW #blackthroatedbluewarbler #bandedbird #colorbands #babe #womenofstem
Even though I kinda grew up with these beauts, it’s such a treat to see them again. I still have never seen one in Iowa or Missouri... I had to come to Maine to get my fill this year. Oh, and they’re ridiculously awesome!

Here’s something a bit different...a Warbler blur:). I’ve been trying to experiment this year with different moods and compositions. I noticed that when the birds are active during a rain shower they will occasionally shake the excess water off. I had a fairly slow shutter active due to the lack of light and pulled the trigger as soon as this bird started drying off. You can see the water streaks coming off if you look closely.

Had a great day of banding yesterday when I caught four second-year birds! These youngsters fell for my decoy right away. Good luck out there boys. . . . #fieldtechlife #birdbanding #hubbardbrook #BTBW #blackthroatedbluewarbler #targetnetting #colorbands #SY #secondyear #younganddumb
The Black Throated Blue warbler. Saw this bird briefly last year and this year after a few occasions got a shot I can live with till next year. Lol 😅 Gorgeous warbler, extremely active like they all are but unique from the regular yellows and greens and olives with black. I tracked it down and when it stopped to belt out its chorus I was able to fire off a few snaps. #blackthroatedbluewarbler #warbler #springtime #nycparks #birding #birdsofinstagram #birdphotograhy #gothamtrini #gardenofbathsheba
I saw one of these striking Black-throated Blue warblers twice last weekend at Michigan's #tawaspointstatepark . Unfortunately both times he was buried deep in the brush and I was unable to get a usable shot. So this one is from my archives - also taken at Tawas Point - but from a few years ago. 💙🖤 . . . #blackthroatedbluewarbler #miparks #warbler #your_best_birds #bestbirdshots #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #kings_birds #birds_adored #bird_brilliance #bb_of_ig #sassy_birds #pocket_birds #birds_captures #eye_spy_birds #ip_birds #BIRDS_iLLife #perfect_birds #audubonsociety #nb_nature_brilliance #animal_captures #rebelsunited_nature #nature_perfection #tgif_nature #planetbirds #thebirdingsquad #nature_worldwide_birds #birdfreaks #best_birds_of_world
