A Couple of Warblers

A couple of warbler species that I spotted right in our campground, and one is another new lifer for me! 

Welcome to my bird lifer list, #211 the Black-throated Blue Warbler!  This is a female, and she is a beauty.

Black-throated Blue Warbler (female)

The Black-throated Blue Warbler breeds in eastern Canada, the upper northeast United States and down through the Appalachian Mountains, then migrates to the Caribbean for the winter. 

The next warbler is the Yellow Warbler.  I’m sharing three photos of several I watched foraging the bushes.  They are either females and/or immatures.  I didn’t see any adult males.

Yellow Warblers are long distant migrants.  They breed across central and northern North America and spend winters in Central America and northern South America.

These two species are on their way to their winter grounds!
