Ken Kaufman presented "Identifying and Appreciating Spring Warblers". The presentation was held at Ottawa Park.
Of the many birds present in northwest Ohio in spring, the warblers undeniably make up the centerpiece of the Biggest Week. This area is called the “Warbler Capital of the World” with good reason in the month of May, and most visiting birders will want to soak up the experience of the dizzying variety and dazzling colors and activity of these magical sprites. Although many warblers are easier to identify in spring than in fall, they can still present some challenges, especially for new birders. In this presentation, Kenn provided numerous tips on learning to identify the warblers in the field. He also gave an overview of the warbler family, including their impressive diversity, their surprising habits, their varied songs and calls, and their incredible migrations.
