If you ask birders in Maine what is their favorite family of bird . . . I’d wager on Warblers. These tiny, colorful, fast moving, bug eaters are often just a few feet away. Warblers are the highlight of spring migration, somedays the trees and bushes are just dripping with birds.
On Thursday I saw my first Palm Warbler in Freeport . . . the first migrating Warbler of my Maine Big Year (although I had five freaky Warblers that wintered over at residential bird feeders).
Today, Ingrid and I returned to the same location and saw dozens!!!
Spring is here!!!!
