May 1st Field Trip Results!

Participants of this morning's Madison Audubon field trip at Pheasant Branch were thrilled to see a beautiful male Cerulean Warbler foraging low. We had 9 other warbler species this morning, including Blue-winged Warbler, Black-and-white Warbler, Tennessee Warbler, Nashville Warbler, Golden-winged Warbler (sang later), and both waterthrush species. Thanks to all who attended and helped make it a special day!

Here's a frame/screen capture last night's bird migration on NexRad:
