I spotted a Mourning Warbler in our front juniper bushes right before heading off to work. This is actually a new yard bird and the first one I’ve seen this year. I am curious as to what other birds have been lurking about after all this rain, especially after reading Larry’s post!

I don’t know the total count of warblers we’ve had in the yard but in the last couple of years we’ve had some cool ones: Common Yellowthroate (new this year), Cape May, Black-throated Blue, Black-throated Green, Golden-winged, Blue-winged, Connecticut (which we captured on film!!), Wilson’s and a host of others…

If you have large trees in your neighborhood, there’s a good chance there are warblers in them now!!
