I kept seeing glimpses of yellow feeding at the Mealworm feeder that is usually only used by the Bluebirds. Hmmm… It looked very much like a American Goldfinch but they don’t eat at that feeder and the coloring was a bit off.
Phil and I had downloaded the IBird Pro app on our phones a while back which we love. A few weeks ago we discovered that it has a new feature called Sleith Photo Recognizer. You open the app, take a photo of the bird and it will recognize it for you. Many times I will have a photo on my camera or my computer, so I take a photo of that. It is awesome! And it has identified all of the birds that I did not know.
So, I went to the Sleuth Photo Recognizer and it identified it as a Pine Warbler. Amazing! I had never seen one here on Cape Cod before, so I added it to my iBird Pro Backyard List.
Very cool, don’t you think?
