I participated in a group walk organized by Massachusetts Audubon with a dozen people recently. It was an overcast morning and a bit foggy when we started at 6:30 in the morning. But the Warblers were everywhere and we spotted or heard 18 different species in a three hour span. This long post has pictures of the 11 species I managed to photograph. Apologies for the length. I think the last picture will make the scrolling worthwhile!
And the somewhat similar Bay-breasted Warbler:
Black and White Warbler:
Black-throated Blue Warbler:
Common Yellowthroat channeling Zorro:
And finally, a Canada Warbler sporting its trademark necklace:
For birdwatcher readers who may be curious about the species not pictured, here’s a run down. Three species were identified by ear only: Ovenbird, Northern Waterthrush and Tennessee Warbler. I couldn’t catch two species with my camera: Yellow Warbler and Black-throated Green Warbler. (These have been in recent posts though.) I didn’t even see the Blackburnian Warbler that was sighted by some people in the group. I did get a rather poor photo of a Wilson’s Warbler. It’s pretty blurry but I am keeping a copy since it is the first one I have seen!
