New backyard bird for us: Audubon’s Warbler

Posted under local birds

As I’ve mentioned before, my wife and I are very proud of our backyard wildlife habitat and we like to brag when we see a new species there. On Saturday I saw an Audubon’s Warbler, a first for our yard! Actually I’m only about 85% sure that that’s what it was — the blotches of yellow are in the right places but it was much less black than in some photos and bird books. But warblers are pretty variable, so that’s not a big surprise. At any rate, whatever it was, it was new to me!
