Bird Tweet of the Week: Wilson’s Warbler

We typically see Wilson’s Warblers in this region during the spring and fall migrations, as they are moving to and from their breeding grounds in the boreal forest. Even during migration this species is a bundle of energy, and is most often seen flitting in and out of shrubs and bushes to catch insects.
