Hermit Warbler – The worshiper.. by A. J. Mithra

Hermit Warbler – The worshiper..

The Hermit Warbler lives in the tops
of some of the tallest trees on the planet…
It is more easily heard than seen while they forage for hidden insects,
or as they pluck berries from a dense grove of evergreen holly trees.

Here again we have another bird who loves
to dwell among the holly trees like the Azores Bullfinch
They are heard but not seen, cos, they dwell in high places…

Adam and Eve chose a different hiding place after they sinned..
GOD could hear them but cannot see..
If JESUS comes in search of us, where will he find us?
Where is your hiding place?
Can we boldly proclaim like Psalmist?

Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word. (Psalm 119:114)

Where have we set our affections?
Do we beseech JESUS who was lifted high for our sins?

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

Hermit Warblers are most often found in mature coniferous forests,
from sea level to the mountains.
During breeding season,
they are most common in stands over 30 years old,
and are generally absent from stands under 20 years old.
They are generally found in the interior of large forests,
high in the canopy…

How do they know the age of stands?
From where did they receive this wisdom?
Do you feel that you lack in wisdom?
Here is a secret,

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33)

During migration and post-breeding,
Hermit Warblers are commonly found in mixed flocks.
When foraging they hop about the foliage,
moving from the trunk outward to branch tips
and then starting back at the trunk.
They also glean items from the foliage
while hovering, and will fly out to catch aerial prey.
Hermit Warblers can hang upside-down
to glean from the undersides of leaves and twigs.
Their preference for high, dense foliage
makes them difficult to spot,
but they can be heard singing regularly during the breeding season.
Males arrive on the breeding grounds before females.
They establish and defend territories by singing…

These birds know the secret of defense…
Our praise is the greatest defense against any attack
that satan may plan..
GOD loves to dwell among our praises,
and that is why Prophet Nehemiah appointed singers to
guard the walls of the city; you can read that in
the book of Nehemiah chapter 7…

I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it. (Psalm 81:10)

Have a blessed day!

Yours in YESHUA,

  1. Being a musician, myself, I am thrilled to see the prominent place God gave music in all of nature. Why just last night, I wrote about a frog who plays an instrument! Honest!

    I can imagine that Heaven will have “surround sound” with worship music on a constant basis, and reading about the hermit warbler singing – as most creatures do – to attract a female just feels like a precursor to Heaven.

    Bless His Holy Name!
