April 16: Watching warblers through the office window

Far from the swaying palms of Florida where we last saw them, a handful of bright yellow, palm-sized Palm Warblers moved through the pussy willows outside my office this gray afternoon. One of spring's first returning warblers, the Palm adds a much-needed note of color to the still-bleak foliage. They also wag their tails as the flit and glean among the branches, an endearing trait.

Bobbing warblers,
early yellow blossoms.
Wistful, I watch from inside.
