Can anyone tell me what these birds are that I see? I will try to get a picture. They are very small and have a bright yellow underside. I hear them peeping. They stay in the tree (just one and I don't know what kind of tree it is) and don't come down to the sidewalk like the other little birds.

I got a picture. Is it a parakeet?

It looked smaller than the little sparrows or whatever they are but bigger than a hummingbird. I think you got it! Blue winged warbler. Thanks! PiNG knows his wings.

You are welcome. I woudl think it is more likely the Prothonotary Warbler since it looks like it does not have the stripe on the eyes.

Thanks, PiNG! I have been seeing them in the mansion/park where I work. One of them was hanging onto my side view mirror looking at him/herself.
