Subject: [Maine-birds] Yellow-throated Warbler S. Portland
Hello Maine birders. Earlier this morning, I watched a Yellow-throated
Warbler foraging with other warbler species in trees outside of my parents'
apartment in South Portland. This is a species I am very familiar with as
I've lived and worked as a biologist in several southeastern and
mid-Atlantic states. I am 100% confident in my identification. I see there
was another one around last month. This is one of the first warblers that
arrives within its typical range so it should be caring for nestlings or
fledglings somewhere south. Perhaps this one picked up and followed a
migrating flock of warblers one night?

The trees are along Mussey St. and the apartment complex is RiverPlace
Apartments (trees closer to the entrance). Please be respectful of the
apartment complex as it is gated (closed at night) and you will be looking
towards apartment windows with binoculars. There are numerous Northern
Parulas, American Redstarts, and Bay-breasted Warblers as well.
