Gangbusters!


Magnolia Warbler

Wow! Southeast winds and a misty morning produced near fallout conditions in southern Wisconsin today. We had our first +20 warbler species outing at Pheasant Branch Conservancy for the year. Counting the Prothonotary Warbler seen this evening and a Mourning Warbler observed by a few other birders, today's warbler total was 24 species. This is about as good as it gets, but I once had a 27 species warbler outing several years ago.

More, please!
