The Coming Warbler Invasion

Monday, April 30th, 2018
Palm Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 30 April 2018.

Palm Warbler.

Had a lovely hike this morning. Took the wooded trail for the first time since last year—and will be taking it throughout the month of May. That’s because of the variety of migrating birds drawn to the trail edges.

I’ll also hike the open trail, of course—hawks and ravens and overflying species—but I’m psyched about the coming warbler invasion.
