Magnolia Warbler – 5/24/18

Observer: Paul Lauenstein

Observation Date: 5/24/18

Observation Time: 8:10 a.m.

Observation Location: Moose Hill Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary

Common Name: Magnolia Warbler

Scientific Name: Setophaga magnolia

Comments: Magnolia warblers are striking birds, but they are hard to photograph because they don’t hold still. Warblers migrate through Sharon in late April through May, feeding primarily on insects and spiders to maintain their strength for the long flight north. After the leaves come out, warblers are especially hard to see up in the trees. You can find them easier if you memorize their respective songs.
