May 28, 2017 – Female Warblers

With spring warbler season coming to and with tomorrow (Memorial Day), Ingrid and I headed to nearby Bath, Maine hoping for a few stragglers.

We saw our most common warblers (Yellow, Common Yellow and Black Throated Green) but interestingly, virtually every bird was a female.

The Black-Throated Green Warbler is a a common bird in the summer around here . . . peculiar whistle-zip song greens us every morning and can be heard all day long.  Despite their omi-presents, they are very difficult to photograph as the flitter in the tops of trees and are nearly impossible to get in focus.

On the way home we stopped at the Bath Cemetery and photographed some Canada Goose goslings, a pair of Wood Ducks, and a huge snapping turtle.
