Black-and-white Warblers

This past weekend, I had some nice encounters with migrating (or possibly overwintering) Black-and-white Warblers here in coastal South Carolina. Every day was cloudy, but I got a couple of decent photos of a male, with his dark face distinguishing him from pale-faced females and immatures. I like these little trunk-hugging sprites - they act like Nuthatches or some kind of woodpecker-wren, rather than leaf and twig dancing like most other Wood Warblers.

 

Here is a male at Santee National Wildlife Refuge (cropped and wide views):

These birds are usually in shady places and challenging to photograph. Here is a female from a few years ago on the north side of Charleston Harbor - I love their yellow feet - kind of like Snowy Egret and Little Egret.
