A flycatcher at the top of the branch.
[A silhouette view of the bird and the leafy open thin branchs of the tree. The lighting was coming from an angle that put the bird and tree in darkness so this almost appears to be a black and white image.]

A great-crested flycatcher.
[This mostly-brown small perching bird has streaks of white and rust on its wings. Its belly is yellow. This is a close view of the bird perched on the small branches of a nearby tree.]

Another view of the same great-crested flycatcher displaying its very yellow belly.
[The bird is now turned enough (it looks back over its shoulder) the grey at its neck and the yellow of its belly is clearly visible.]

Eastern phoebes are part of the flycatcher family.
[This bird has a dark brown head and back and a white breast. The beak is small, sharp, and dark.]

The backside of an Eastern phoebe.
[The outer edges of the feathers are near-white and provide outlines of the dark brown feathers on the birds back. The bird, perched on a branch, has its head turned to the right exposing its brown eye and the edge of its light-colored neck.]

Palm warbler with its spring rust-colored cap.
[A medium-size brown bird with a yellow belly and yellow and brown streaks across its head stands within the links of the chain-link fence.]

This male northern parula looks like it is wearing a facemask and hood. This bird is part of the warbler family.
[Two images of the bird are combined into one photo. The image on the left is slightly blurry, but shows the side of the face as well as the underside of the bird. The image on the right is just the underside of the bird. This bird has a yellow belly and a yellow chin area. There is some rust color in with the yellow. The neck, head, and back are blue-grey. The stomach is white.]

Blackpoll warblers migrate northward through Florida in mid May. This is a male with its black and white head.
[This bird's orange legs and feet are perched on a branch. The top half of its head running down even with the midpoint of its eyes is black. The rest is white. Its back feathers are olive-brown with white stripes on the wings. Its underbelly is white with some dark patched at the edges near the wings.]

Female blackpoll warblers tend to blend in with the branches.
[The female's body and leg coloring are the same as the male's. Her head, however, is not white and black, but is the same coloring as her back, olive-brown with dark stripes. She has the same white belly with dark patches near the wing edge of her belly. There are thin branches between her and the camera which block some parts of her body.]

Yellow-bellied warbler.
[This bird perched on a branch has a brown back and a tan belly with brown flecks and a back end (underside) which is yellow.]

Another yellow-bellied warbler.
[This bird perched on a very thin branch is looking upward which makes its entire yellow underside visible. Only a small brown portion of its back is visible.]

A female yellow-rumped warbler.
Her natural coloring looks like someone dropped some paint on her back.
[The warbler is perched on a branch with her head turned to the left. This view of her from the back displays a large bright yellow splotch on her back amid the white-rimmed dark brown feathers.  She has a small pointy beak. ]

A different view of the same warbler from the prior image.
She has yellow patches on her breast as well as her back.
[Side view of the bird as she looks up into the tree. She's on a branch with green leaves around her, but she is fully visible. There is a small yellow patch on her left breast (the side facing us) and one on the lower part of her back. Her throat is white as is most of her belly. Her wings are a mix of brown, white, and grey. ]

A male eastern bluebird and a yellow-rumped warbler. Warblers are small birds.
[The two birds sit on a top rail of a metal fence. The bluebird on the left has its back to the camera while the left side of the warbler on the right is visible. ]

The ruby-crowned kinglet is even smaller than a warbler.
[The greenish bird with a yellowish belly is perched on a branch looking at the camera from under another branch which covers its crown. ]

The red crown of this bird is hardly noticeable amid the olive-colored feathers.
[The bird's head is turned toward the left displaying its sharp beak. There is only the slightest tint of red atop the bird's head. ]

The bird flashed its red feathers in a place that was nearly out of my camera's range.
Not great images, but they give an idea of the location of the red feathers.
[Two fuzzy images of the bird. A side view on the left show a red spot atop the bird's head. The bird faces the camera on the right showing a triangle of read on its head. ]
