WARBLER TIME! John Burroughs Nature Sanctuary
Thursdays, May 6 and May 13, 2021

Join us for this special inaugural Warbler event.  We will explore the sanctuary in search of these neotropical migrants on the first two Thursdays of May during the peak of spring migration in our region.  At a time when they are in their most brilliant courting colors, warblers are often ranked as the highlight of the spring migration.    

You are not likely to find these charmers at your feeder; these primarily insect-loving avians are most often in the woods.  And, for several species, the John Burroughs Nature Sanctuary is their final destination where they will breed throughout the spring and summer.  These migrants include species like Blackburnian and Black-throated Green Warblers, Acadian Flycatcher, Yellow-throated Vireo, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, and Scarlet Tanager.   

Their bright plumage will make them stand out and more visible.  And, with Mark DeDea leading the walk all are sure to have successful sightings.    

Warblers are beautiful and sought after and this is the time to be in the woods when magic can happen.  So update your bird ID app and put away your Thursday morning schedule during this time of peak warbler migration.  Registration is required and participation limited.  Register early.
