3 April 2014 – Black-and-white Warbler

Our first migrant of 2014 was this unfortunate Black-and-white Warbler.  She’s female and I aged her as a second-year bird (molt limit was more obvious in direct light) with fat = 1.  She was on the north side of the building though our winds were strong from the south yesterday and today.

There was a pretty good flight of migrants overnight behind storms that flared up in Kansas.  Check out the stream of migrants in south Texas.  Those will be coming through tonight, and might drop out as we’re expecting a powerful cold front to move through here.
