Northern Parula Warbler – 5/8/23

Observer: Paul Lauenstein

Observation Date: 5/8/23

Observation Time: 9:05 a.m.

Observation Location: Moose Hill Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary

Common Name: Northern Parula Warbler

Scientific Name: Setophaga americana

Comments: Northern parula warblers pass through Sharon in late April and early May on their northward migration. They are typically seen high in the trees, so it helps to look for them at the end of April and the beginning of May before the leaves have fully emerged. An app called Merlin is very helpful for finding out what species of birds are singing nearby.

You can monitor the bird migration in spring by keeping an eye on the live radar map at:
