As spring is finally almost here, we are excitedly awaiting one of the season’s first arriving warblers. The yellow-throated warbler winters in the Everglades, south Texas, and Mexico, but migrates north as early as March.
It prefers nesting in Spanish moss, but its range is expanding northward, in which case it nests high up in pines and sycamores (30 – 60 feet up – sometimes even up to 120 feet!).
We were lucky enough to spot this guy in January when we visited the Everglades.
