Black-throated Gray Warbler

Black-throated Gray WarblerBlack-throated Gray WarblerThe Southern Arizona High Desert might not have the variety of Warbler species that migrate through my old home grounds on the east coast, but what we do have is every bit as beautiful. The Black-throated Gray Warbler is an example of this. A study in contrast, this tiny gray, black and white bird has just one bit of explosive color in its yellow eyebrows. The impact from seeing one straight on is both startling and delightful.

A common summer bird in the western US, they can typically be seen and heard flitting about Pinyon Pines, Juniper and Oak trees of the low elevation riparian forests. We found this one in a mixed flock of Plumbeous Vireo and Yellow-Rumped Warblers at the Patagonia lake campgrounds.

I've heard it said that art is a form of communication and the goal of the artist is to show the world as seen through their eyes and felt in their soul. For me, that would mean expressing the wonderful creation of God as I experience it in my wanderings. I remain His scribe.
