2019—Cape May

On our first morning at Magee Marsh, Cape May Warblers were everywhere and throughout our week there, they continued to be one of the dominant species of warbler that we saw. According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, the Cape May Warbler was so named because it was first observed in Cape May, then, ironically, it was not seen there again for more than 100 years. This male in full breeding plumage, rests on a willow branch.
