Cerulean Warbler

May 9, 2011 | Birding

Saturday and Sunday were the St. Paul Audubon’s Warbler weekend in Frontenac, MN. The weekend count for the group was 131 bird species.  The warbler count was our best total since 2002.  Highlights included both Yellow-billed and Black-billed Cuckoos, 26 species of warblers including 3 Ceruleans, Canada, Connecticut, Prothonotary, and Bay-breasted, 14 species of sparrows including Henslow’s at Frontenac State Park, Tufted Titmouse, and 5 vireo species.

One of my highlights was a first time photographing a Cerulean Warbler. The Cerulean nests and forages higher in the canopy than most other warblers and is extremely hard to catch and is considered a threatened species.
