Saw some of these is MI but never in Texas before. Found two on some trees near a drive a couple of days ago. Please confirm.

Yep, Yellow Warblers.

p.s.-love that first shot, the clarity is fantastic on the bird.

They certainly look like Yellow Warblers. But according to Sibley's they only migrate through Texas. It seems a bit early for migration. Nice pictures!

Although very active they didn't scare off, so I got quite a few nice shots. Folks down in the Dallas-Ft Worth area have already been seeing some migratory birds on the move. Weird weather everywhere this year might be changing some patterns.

I saw two in Central Texas near Austin in May, but I guess that would have been during migration.

Love the first picture. I live in MI and this was my first warbler species to identify.
