My local Palm Warbler has been eating Gloria’s perfect nutrition pellets. She never eats very much of her food so the remainder goes with her unfinished seeds to my feeding platform for the Mourning Doves, Titmice, Cardinals and now the Warblers!
But there’s something odd. My Palm Warbler eats the red and orange pellets and leaves the green and yellow ones. Are the different colors flavored? There’s only one way to be sure. I tasted a small handful of each of the four colors. Feh! No, there is no difference in taste of the colors. Gloria shows no preference either, in case you do not believe my assessment.
This Myrtle Warbler comes to drink from the oranges I cut but does not eat pellets. He chases the poor Palm Warbler away relentlessly. Neither is easy to photograph!
