magnolia warbler

I posted these pictures back in May of 2010.  Just the other day I got a comment on the old post correcting my identification of this bird.  I just assumed it was a goldfinch, you know because of the gold coloring, and the fact that we frequently have goldfinches around here.  But it is not a goldfinch, it is a magnolia warbler, as my commentor stated.  Just want to set the record straight for all of you budding ornithologists.

And yesterday I did something that I must incorporate more often.  I did a backwards to-do list.  I had reached the end of the day feeling overwhelmed by what I had not accomplished.  That icky feeling of being inadequate was starting to attach itself to me.  I decided to outsmart my emotions with truth.  I listed all of the things I had accomplished that day.  As the list grew longer I was stunned to realize that, indeed, I am a hard worker that gets things done.

    That was very wise of you, outsmarting that vile little doubting voice in your head! She was a jerk anyway! We are very busy and get a lot of things done, whether that one or two items gets marked off or not. Congrats, you busy little magnolia warbler!

    magnolia warbler is ever so much more fun to say than goldfinch, anyway.

    and you ARE a mighty worker who gets things done!

  3. Wow. I’d have never known. All yellow birds are goldfinches in my verrrrrrrrrrrrrrry limited ornithological experience. I agree with Melinda though. It is more fun to say warbler.
