Warbler Winter

It was an interesting morning at Great Meadows NWR in Concord. Travis and I arrived around 8 and were greeted by a flock of 30+ Common Redpolls feeding on the dike trail.

Later, along the river near the boat launch, we ran into a palm warbler who was hanging out with a pine. Shortly after, Travis located a common yellowthroat on the north side of the eastern pond.

Strange to see all the warblers right now but I like the little reminders of Spring and warmer weather.

Checklist here:

PS. Everything is frozen except the river so don't count on many waterfowl  unless the weather warms up.
