The notorious ‘confusing fall warblers’ pose one of the classic identification challenges for North American birdwatchers. After being born in the summer, these warblers, sporting a drabber and often quite different plumage than that of the adults, undertake their first fall migration and appear in mixed species flocks in our local woods and parks. For all their diversity (there are over 30 species of wood warbler in the Eastern US) many of these ‘hatch year’ birds do share a good many physical characteristics and can be hard to even see well, much less distinguish! Join Ventures Birding’s Aaron Steed as he highlights some helpful ID tips and pointers, deciphering those confusing fall warblers and making it all a little less confusing.
