Magnolia Warbler

Magnolia warbler by Harold Stiver

I saw a small bird with a yellow breast boldly striped with black, busily gleaning something from a fruit tree–insects, I suppose. It was quite striking. It was a magnolia warbler, which might have been passing through to northern forests or staying for the summer. We get quite a few unusual birds passing through in the spring.
