Chuck Henrikson’s Birding Report From UW–Madison Arboretum

“Warbler migration is almost at its end. The clue for that is the arrival of Yellow-rumped Warblers. They are the first to arrive in the spring and the last to leave in the fall. I saw a high of 23 Yellow-rumped Warblers last Saturday. I was hoping to see about 30 species of Warblers this fall. I actually felt good about seeing 24 species especially since some of those species have very different, mostly drab, plumages in the fall making them difficult to identify.” Read Chuck’s Weekly Birding Report #27.
