Warbler Season in Wisconsin

Warbler Season in Wisconsin

I’m getting excited! It is warbler season in Wisconsin. Now, many of my friends look at me like I am speaking in a foreign language when I talk about Warblers.

Pine Warbler

What is a Warbler? – So, here is the scoop – a warbler is a bird. They migrate back to our area in the spring. Breed and leave. Many of the birds can only be seen here for a few weeks. Which, gets people like me, out in the wooded areas to see if we can spot them.

Characteristics of Warblers – They are perching birds that move quickly. They share some characteristics, such as being fairly small, vocal, and insectivorous. They tend to be more easily heard than seen. Identification can be difficult and may be made on the basis of the song alone.

When Do They Arrive? In our area of Green Bay, Wisconsin, normally, I see either the Yellow Warbler or Yellow-Rumped Warbler first. That usually occurs at the end of March, beginning of April.

Need Help IDing a Warbler? – I found this handy online PDF to help identify them a few years back. It also has an app you can buy as well, but I only needed the free PDF ID guide.


Warbler Guide

Print the guide. Fold it and stick it in your pocket.
