Prairie Warbler – 6/2/19

Observer: Paul Lauenstein

Observation Date: 6/2/19

Observation Time: 1:20 p.m.

Observation Location: on the bluff beneath the power lines that parallel So. Walpole St.

Common Name: Prairie Warbler

Scientific Name: Setophaga discolor

Comments: Prairie warblers are found in scrubby fields and forests throughout the eastern and south-central United States, not on the prairies. Unlike many other warblers that migrate through Sharon in spring and fall, the Prairie Warbler hangs around all summer. You can find them in brushy areas under power lines, especially if you learn to recognize their ascending trill.
