Seasons change. So, too, do the birds you see in your area as many species launch into their yearly migration southward to their wintering grounds. We’d like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the non-breeding plumages of eight warbler species whose looks change drastically as the weather turns chilly. Warblers in spring are a hot commodity, so why not examine how some of them look as they make their long journeys south?
This fall warbler guide contains the following information:
- Visual comparisons of breeding and non-breeding male plumage
- A general description of south-bound migratory paths
- Details on each species’ male non-breeding plumage
- Notes on how the above differs from the species’ male spring plumage
