Warblers at the Fox River Sanctuary in Waukesha Wisconsin on May 13, 2018

I had an hour free in the afternoon so I stopped at the Fox River Sanctuary in Waukesha. It had a nice selection of warblers but not a lot of numbers of each. Warblers species seen, Blackburnian, Cape May, Yellow, Tennessee, Nashville, Magnolia, Chestnut-sided, American Redstart, Black-and-white, Blackpoll, and Northern Parula. They actively feed along the river. It was a cloudy day, mild temps in the mid 60’s, little wind. Images were taken on May 13, 2018.

    That’s a great place for spring birding. I had well over 100 warbler individuals there a few days ago.

    Jim
    I really appreciate all the views of the birds you photograph. As a somewhat novice birder, it really helps me to make some of my own identifications. Bird guides don’t show as many angles.
    Many thanks for sharing your talents.
