I’ve been in Northwest Ohio all weekend finishing up all of the final plans for the Biggest Week in American Birding that starts in just over a week. (You can find many of us from Birds & Blooms at the event!) Even though I was up there for meetings, I was still able to sneak away for a bit to search for warblers on the boardwalk at Magee Marsh. It was cold and windy this morning but a few warblers were around. My favorite species of the day was Palm Warbler. Palm Warblers are one of the earlier migrant warblers and there were several of them along the boardwalk today. This warbler species is almost as distinctive by its constant tail bobbing as it is by its plumage.
Migration is certainly picking up! What warblers have you been seeing in your area?
