Joy to the Warbler!

sunny 44 °F

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!

Merry Christmas!

Where did you see the warbler? Was it the one that showed up in your yard?

That's a nice surprise. I've had a few times myself where I didn't realize I saw a bird until I reviewed the picture, sometimes much later.
