The Prothonotary Warbler is a bright yellow, large, heavy-bodied warbler with a big head and bill. It has shorter legs and a shorter tail than other warblers . . . and is rarely seen in Maine.
A few days ago one was seen in Kennebunkport.
Up early I found the spot at sunrise and was soon joined by several other birders.
The Prothonotary was soon sighted and it moved in and out of the low shrubs . . . a real thrill.
Saw quite a few other birds as well.
