Sometimes you don't have to go further than your iPad to find a life bird!
Today while I was looking back on the photo below taken on April 19 of this year, I realized I had made a previous misidentification about this photo (which I originally thought to be a Pine Warbler)! It is actually a PRAIRIE WARBLER - a life bird for me because that is the only time I have ever seen that species!
To compare the two species, here are the links to their species pages on the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's website:
Pine Warbler: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Pine_Warbler/id
Prairie Warbler: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Prairie_Warbler/id
Stay tuned, I leave for my Wisconsin/Sax-Zim Bog trip the day after Christmas!
