Today we take a closer look at the Cape May Warbler. This interesting migratory warbler was first described in Cape May, New Jersey – hence its name. They are not as numerous as some other warblers so seeing one is a treat.
The pics below were taken at the Jarvis Bird Sanctuary. Jarvis is just south of Montrose Point and is often overlooked as a birding spot. It is a heavily wooded area and surrounded by a fence. Viewing takes place by walking the perimeter of the park and peering into the woods (a small area is cleared into the woods near a viewing area with bleacher seating nearby.
I could use some help with the first picture. Taken in the fall, this is either an immature male or a female. What’s the right call?
The next pics are of a male hiding in a pine tree.
Love those warblers!
