Yellow-rumped, Palm and Yellow Warblers at Wehr Nature Center in Franklin Wisconsin on April 23, 2019

One of my birding stops today was Wehr Nature Center in Franklin for warblers. I have not been to the nature center since April 9 of this year. Yellow-rumped Warblers were the only warbler species present on that day and today was almost the same. Today it was mainly Yellow-rumped Warblers again with 2 Palm and 1 Yellow warbler. A few Ruby-crowned Kinglets were also seen. It was exciting to get my first Palm and Yellow warblers of the year! Some Swamp Sparrows were also present. I birded some of the Milwaukee lakefront before Wehr this morning and birds to note, 2 groups of Ruddy Ducks, one of 25 or more ducks and another smaller one. Also a group of 12 Northern Shovelers all near the Art Museum. A flyover Common Loon. It was a beautiful morning, but chilly near the lake early winds off the lake, I still needed a scarf! Once the sun came out around 11 AM things started to warm up. Images were taken on April 23, 2019.

    Beautiful! Thanks for the info on the shorebirds! I’ll be using that for quick I.D. I’m seeing many kinglets(both species) and Yellow-rumped in a small wooded area along the FoxRiver Trail that has a stream running through it. It is nice to find new spots that offer rewards with sitings.

    Wonderful! I saw the yellow warbler and palm warbler near the waterfall this morning. Wow, that yellow warbler was just so bright and you captured that glow!
