2013: Twenty-seven Warbler Species and Counting - Updated
Row 2: An Ovenbird, a Pine Warbler and a Yellow-throated Warbler. While I only saw the Pine Warbler this year, I drew from my record shots to show the other two birds. Dave Brown reported an Overbird on Cuckhold's Cove Trail. I can't recall the details of a report of the Yellow-throated Warbler other than it was seen on the southern shore.
Row 3: The Northern Parula which I didn't see this year was found by Mary and Madonna. What a great find! The Orange-crowned Warbler stayed around downtown for only a few days into the new year.
Beyond pictures available in my stock, there were two great warblers not shown here. Anne Hughes found a Prothonotary Warbler in Trepassey and Dave Brown reported a Bay-breasted Warbler in Bear Cove. There may be others I have missed here. Further details can be obtained by sifting through all of the posts on NFBirds as there is no complete resource to generate a list. Not all warblers have been reported on eBird. If anyone knows of others I have missed, please share.
I wonder how 26 compares to counts of previous years.
