The recent whoosh of wind from the north brought a new batch of migrating songbirds. They are loving the great insect, seed, and berry feast found at Cape Ann woods, marsh sides, and roadways.

I am often puzzled about which species of warblers when out filming our local wildlife, especially at this time of year when many songbirds are in their non-breeding plumage and there are many juveniles on the wing. After I have a chance to look at the images at my desktop, it’s simpler to id, but not always.

This warbler is easier to identify than many. Is it a:

1) Magnolia Warbler

2) Yellow-rumped Warbler

3) Nashville Warbler

Clue – stay til the end of the clip and you can see why this warbler is named as such.
