Wondrous Warblers

The spring season is always a magical time in the Midwest. Warmer temperatures bring along a wide array of colorful migrating warblers. Some delight us with their beauty throughout the summer months and others stop for only a brief visit as they make their way north.

Magnificent migrant moments Julie! All Beautiful.
The Chestnut sided and Blackburnian warblers were lifers for me this year, I especially love those shots. And really appreciate the Wilson's warbler capture because that bird was a challenge for me this year. I kept missing those 'pause for a moment' moments. Sweet yellow rumped action, perfect wing span!
