Warblers at Wehr Nature Center in Franklin Wisconsin on May 16, 2019

One of my birding stops for warblers today was Wehr Nature Center. After an hour things got busy and nice species where seen. Some of the highlight warblers were Mourning, Bay-breasted, Blackburnian, Blackpoll, Yellow, Canada, Magnolia, American Redstart, Common Yellowthroat and Chestnut-sided. It was an overcast morning and nice temps, low winds making it very comfortable. Images were taken on May 16, 2019.

    Pretty impressive Jim. Have you ever noticed all the differences in color of legs/feet/toenails?/?? It’s kind of fascinating. . . . distinct in each species!

    Jim, your photos are second best to seeing the warblers. Thanks for the wonderful shots. I wondered if many of them were singing. Anne

    Wow, great images and variety. The two days I was out I saw 8 species in total and only 3 of the species you posted here. I’ll be back in town tomorrow to give it another go. I went to the Fox R Sanctuary early last week and saw next to nothing over 2 hours. You have the eye and camera skills to be sure.
