I decided to do some searching for a Kirtland’s Warbler in Adams County Wisconsin on May 27, 2016. I had some luck along side a road where a male was singing away. No calls were used in obtaining these images and the images were taken from the road in an area where habitat looked good for this species to breed. Distant images were taken on May 27, 2016.
Binomial name: Dendroica kirtlandii
Category: Wood Warblers
Size: 5.75” long, 8.75” wing span
Weight: .48 oz
Cool facts: Through effort this bird is recovering well from once low numbers. This species requires large tracks of land for breeding with sizes comprising of 160 acres or more. Habitat they prefer is dense young jack pine.
Great work Jim. So exciting to have this bird in Wisconsin at multiple locations.
