They're on the move!

With bird migration beginning to show activity during the night on NEXRAD, Sunday morning yielded a small assortment of southbound warblers: Blue-winged, Black-and-white, Tennessee, and Mourning Warbler. Plus, there was an uptick of American Redstarts and juvenile Common Yellowthroats along the creek corridor. By the end of August we should be able to find a dozen or more warbler species in just a an hour or so of birding time. My next Open Birding date is August 28th at Pheasant Branch Conservancy's creek corridor ― one of the hottest migratory traps in southern Wisconsin. I hope to see you there!
