Gotta Catch ‘Em All

Warblers in Wisconsin

Gotta Catch ‘Em All

There have been some really wonderful colored birds lately on the walking paths. If you are an active birding fan you know that the warblers are sprinkled around the area.  I feel like my children during the Pokemon stage of life – Gotta Catch ‘Em All !

Ways to Find Warblers:

1.) Which Warblers Can You Expect to See? –   Find out what Warblers you can expect to see in your area. (I have a list of Wisconsin warbler below)  List common, rare and occasional. It makes a world of difference when you can identify each warbler. Learn what the male and female look like.  Remember, they can look very different from one another.

Need Help IDing a Warbler? – I posted a handy online PDF to help identify them under this post.

2.) Learn the Call of Each Warbler – If you can identify the call of the different types of warblers, it makes it easier to spot them.

3.) Know the Habit of the Warbler – Each type of warbler has a specific place they enjoy hanging out.  Don’t we all?  Looking to see a Canada Warbler?  It varies from the environment you normally find a Northern Waterthrush.

4.) Exchange Information – Have a network of people that exchange locations or follow checklists on a site like eBird or other birders.

I have an excellent start! Gotta Catch ‘Em All! I have a good start for my first serious first year taking a crack at capturing warblers.  Maybe, when they pass through my area again in fall, I can add to the collection.  There again, there is always next year too.  It is the thrill of the hunt.
