First Warblers!

Black-and-white Warbler

I've been hitting the creek corridor this week for southbound migratory songbirds with some success. I found a Black-and-White Warbler on Wednesday and a Tennessee Warbler just this morning, while another birder reported finding a Northern Waterthrush. There are also American Redstarts, but they could be locally dispersed birds from the northeast side of the conservancy where they are known to nest. Still, this is the time of year they begin to show up along the corridor with other warbler species. Activity will increase in another week or two, so get ready!
