Myrtle Warblers in Potter Valley
- Hi Birders. While standing on the back deck this
evening, I heard an unfamiliar bird song. It turned
out to be a troop of a half dozen or so Myrtle
Warblers, notable (to me) for two reasons: firstly
because wintering Myrtle Warblers tend prefer dense
coastal riparian thickets, and secondly because these
were the first Warblers of any species I have seen in
the yard since I got back from Costa Rica last week.
So, these guys, spiffy-looking in fresh alternate,
were definitely migrants that weren't here earlier in
the day! It's always fun to see migration in action.
