Observer: Paul Lauenstein

Observation Date: 4/29/24

Observation Time: 9:00 a.m.

Observation Location: Moose Hill Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary

Common Name: Yellow-rumped Warbler

Scientific Name: Setophaga coronata

Comments: I spotted this yellow-rumped warbler in a flowering crabapple tree on the Billings Loop. Flowering trees oftern attract birds, especially those that feed on the insects attracted by the blossoms.

The annual northward bird migration is getting started and a few colorful warblers and other photogenic migrants are beginning to show up in Sharon. To keep track of the waves of migrating birds heading our way, check out the animated bird radar maps at

Also, don’t leave home without the free app Merlin on your cell phone. It will tell you which birds are singing within earshot.
