Content Detail

Enjoy the fall warbler migration while learning a methodical approach to dealing with fall plumages, arrival dates, migration patterns, habitat preferences, and alternate feeding approaches. Brightly colored warblers are now greatly altered in appearance but still recognizable by using some field-tested techniques that rely on subtle details.
