And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees,branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days. (Leviticus 23:40 KJV) [Foretold]
The next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and cried out: “Hosanna! ‘BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD!’ The King of Israel!” Then Jesus, when He had found a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written: “FEAR NOT, DAUGHTER OF ZION; BEHOLD, YOUR KING IS COMING, SITTING ON A DONKEY’S COLT.” (John 12:12-15 NKJV) [Fulfilled]

(I pushed the photos a little bit by including the Semipalmated Plover and Sandpiper)
Never saw a palm warbler before — what a nice little bird! Here in Texas we just had an unusual cold snap (freezing temp last night) for this time of year — so much for the “global warming” scare! — anyway, we are seeing some birds now that we don’t usually see on Tax Day. For example, I just saw a snowy egret on the edge of a pond. Great white egrets are common, and cattle egrets, but it’s been a long time since I’ve seen a snowy egret in Denton County (Texas). Thanks for the mini-vacation that your bird-site provides, Lee.
You must really love birds because you surly take a lot of pictures of them. I had no idea how many birds are called palm. Interesting.
Most of the photos are not mine, but from photographers who have given me permission to use or from Creative Commons. I was surprised when I made it up that there were so many.
