Whether we call our passion (obsession) bird-watching or birding, there is no question what warbling is – the quest to find those flittery little migrants known as Wood-Warblers. Yesterday wasn’t a top day of warbling, but we spotted our first warblers of the season (besides the nearly year-round Yellow-rumped Warblers).
We spent some time between counting cranes and Dakota’s baseball practice visiting Sugar River Forest Preserve, a fantastic warbling hotspot.

Pine Warbler – aptly named in this shot
Pine Warbler – telling the Chipping Sparrows to stop sounding like him
The warbling season has begun and we know it will be a busy one!!

That’s a cute guy 😉
Very sweet warbler!
Cool pics. Nice one of the Pine Warbler! I’ve had the pleasure of catching this little guy in my backyard before. Very Bright!
Stunning photos and I making it through the winter knowing the Warblers will return in the spring! I just love this time of the year!
Melissa – we usually don’t get such nice views of Pine Warblers
Shelley – both are great!!
J. Karl – we’ve never had one in the yard (yet) but we keep hoping.
Monarch – this is THE best time of the year 🙂
a yellow rumped warbler crashed into my newly washed window on sunday morning. we took him to a local bird rescue place and he is still there, dazed but okay for now. my 4 year old son told me to never wash the windows again.
