It’s that time of year when little warblers seems to be almost everywhere in Central Florida.
I came across them at Hal Scott Regional Preserve, at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, at Orlando Wetlands, at the UCF Arboretum – and even in my backyard.
What are warblers? A-Z-Animals.com put it this way: “They are small birds with plumage ranging from drab colors like gray and brown to brighter ones like red, blue, and yellow. They are known for their trilling and quavering songs. Some of them have duller voices, whereas others have loud, piercing calls.”
The ones I am seeing most are the Common Yellowthroat Warblers and the Palm Warblers. But in my backyard, I was happy to see the Black-and-White Warbler made a return visit.
