2017 OCTOBER QUIZ:
"Confusing Fall Warblers"
Do you have what it takes to identify confusing fall warblers?
Donning mostly yellow to green plumage, migrating fall warblers often confound even the most seasoned birders and confuse just about everyone looking through binoculars. Compared to their alternate plumage in spring, most warblers’ basic plumage in fall is very nondescript, with characteristics often shared by other warblers. But, there is always some field mark to look for or clues that add up to aid in identification and discern one species from another. Identify each species and you’ll be on your way to being a fall warbler master!
[Hint: each bird can be found in Ohio during migration (and some are summer breeders) and, not all fall plumages look that different than spring.]
