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.
The Nashville Warbler is yellow and gray with a white eyering.
Pine Warbler found in a pine tree.
Northern Parula Warbler
The Northern Parula Warbler is a yellow and gray Warbler with a white eye-ring and belly.

The male American Redstart is all black with orange patches on belly, wingbar, and tail. The underside of the belly is white.
The female Redstart looks very different from the male. The female is gray with a white stomach, yellowish-orange in front of the wing, one wing bar, and on the tail.
Male Kirtland’s Warbler
Normally you find Kirtland Warblers in areas that have small pine regrowth of trees from fires. The warblers are a steel gray colored bird with yellow bellies and white eye crescents.
