Pine Warbler – 4/25/23

Observer: Paul Lauenstein

Observation Date: 4/25/23

Observation Time: 8:30 a.m.

Observation Location: Moose Hill Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary

Common Name: Pine Warbler

Scientific Name: Setophaga pinus

Comments: Pine warblers are typically found in pine groves. Many warbler species migrate through Sharon in May on their way to nesting areas farther north, but pine warblers nest here in Sharon, and can be found here all summer. Although they typically migrate south in winter, some of them stick around in Massachusetts through the winter.

The trilling call of the pine warbler can be hard to distinguish from that of a chipping sparrow.
