Happy Monday! Our 2013 Birdorable Bonanza continues today with our new bird, the Blue-winged Warbler.
The Blue-winged Warbler is a lovely species of New World warbler that breeds across a range in eastern North America. They are migratory; winters are spent in the Caribbean and Central America.
Blue-winged Warblers are closely related to Golden-winged Warblers. The two species often hybridize; offspring are called either "Brewster's Warbler" (who take after the Blue-winged parent) or "Lawrence's Warbler" (who more resemble the Golden-winged parent).
Tomorrow we'll add a species of duck that faces a threat from a very close relative.
