I don't usually see much warbler activity in my yard during the summer. I know a few warbler species nest in my area, I just don't see much of them until fall migration. So when I saw five different warbler species in my yard on a very warm (mid-80s) day last week, I was both thrilled and surprised.
Here are the three I was able to capture an image of:
The camera shy warblers were an American Redstart and a Common Yellowthroat.
I know I have two more warblers around this summer that just didn't show up that day. A few days earlier I saw this Black- throated Green Warbler.
And here's a female Yellow-rumped Warbler that was gathering nest material in my yard in early June. And I just recently saw the male yellow-rumped foraging in our trees.
I hope this is a sign of a good warbler breeding year that will lead to a great fall warbler migration, maybe one that will add a new bird or two to my yard list!
