Woodland Walk 2

A mixed flock of migrants, chipping and foraging through the trees, all in fall plumage – a guessing game to challenge me and my ID skills.

Some were more obvious – those that were singing: black-and-white warbler, blue-headed vireo, and ruby-crowned kinglet, and those that were more easily identifiable: yellow-rumped warbler, nashville warbler, and common yellowthroat. And at least one individual who did me the kindness to pose for my camera, so I could look up the ID later: this beautiful Magnolia Warbler.

A great resource for warbler identification, with downloadable pdfs to print and pack with you in the field, can be found here:
