Warbler

By the hair of my chiny chin chin -- I have entered The Craft Barn's Alpha challenge - the letter 'W' with circles in the background.  You can find this delightful challenge here.  I have chosen the word Warbler.




I have taken artistic license  - I don't think that a Hummingbird is a warbler.   I should ask Alison at Words and Pictures - don't you think?

Thanks for your visit and as everyone knows - comments bring me so much pleasure and for all my followers, a sincere thank you.    Sandy

Absolutely exquisite images, both of them... the colouring on the right hand ones is just glorious, and I love the adorable little brown ones huddled together. Really beautiful pages!
I'm really no ornithologist (sorry to let you down)- but on a vocal front, any form of singing could be termed warbling if you wanted to call it that, so humming would definitely count!!
