|Magnolia Warbler Breeding Plumage|
It's a big thrill each spring when the warblers come through during their migration north. After months of gray winter their bright colors cheer us up and remind us that summer is on the way. Then there is the other migration.
|Magnolia Warbler Non-breeding Plumage|
In the fall the warblers move back through, heading south where there are plenty of insects to eat. During this migration the warblers are in their non-breeding plumage which is usually not as colorful. We still like to see them but on this trip they are a reminder that summer is over and soon the long winter will arrive.
