Yellow Warbler at Times Beach Nature Preserve
Status: Neotropical Migrant, Common. Breeds here.
Friendly, easy to find and watch. This bird migrates through Times Beach in the Spring and Fall, and breeds here. Nests and young can be found with some regularity.
The Yellow Warbler is a neotropical migrant. While it breeds and has babies here, it winters in Central and South America. Our nature preserve and our entire region has strong connections to worldwide conservation needs. By protecting habitat for nesting contribute to the biodiversity of places like the Arctic and the Amazon.
Read this profile by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology about how they traced one bird in the summer of 2017 to Columbia.
One of the easy to see warblers at Times Beach, this iconic little beauty nests here and is very friendly. One of nearly 50 North American warbler species.
From the Cornell All About Birds description:
" North America has more than 50 species of warblers, but few combine brilliant color and easy viewing quite like the Yellow Warbler. In summer, the buttery yellow males sing their sweet whistled song from willows, wet thickets, and roadsides across almost all of North America. The females and immatures aren’t as bright, and lack the male’s rich chestnut streaking, but their overall warm yellow tones, unmarked faces, and prominent black eyes help pick them out."
