Return of the Wandering Warblers
- Each Spring the woodlands of America resound to the birdsong of returning visitors. Warblers – fifty three species of them all in all – arrive and right now is the best time to see them as they migrate. Their arrival heralds a dazzling dash of colour as the greenness of American forests is peppered as if with the ravishing hues of thousands of tiny precious stones. Here are some of the returnees announcing the spring in their unique way. It must be said that they usually seem to be a little happier than the disgruntled looking Yellow-rumped Warbler above.
