BREWSTER'S WARBLER , SUMMERFIELD TOWNSHIP,, MONROE COUNTY, MICHIGAN, 15 MAY 2019

I had the leisurely experience of photographing a foraging Brewster’s Warbler. At the time I was not curious as to what the bird was seeking among the emerging oak leaves. Since photos can capture what the eye does not see, they became my gateway to Archips, the generic name for the Leafroller Moths, consisting of more than 100 species. “There is a time for everything,” so it is said. And May is the time of the Archips larva hatch, a timely event in lower Michigan, for May is also the peak for returning insectivorous passerines, especially the wood warblers. For the rest of the story see: www.flickr.com/photos/snow-shadow/albums/72157710330375167
