Comments: These gorgeous little birds pass through Sharon in early May on their northward migration. Learn to recognize their song to improve your chances of seeing one early on a clear morning at the end of April or in early May.

The end of its tail looks like it was dipped in black paint. This is a distinguishing feature of magnolia warblers.
