The bane of North American birders in spring is the painful malady known as “warbler neck” that is caused by spending too much time staring nearly straight up into the tree tops trying to spot the colorful creatures that we all want to see.  Fortunately we here at 10,000 Birds, after exhaustive and exhausting research, have come up with a solution to “warbler neck” that still allows one to appreciate every member of the family Parulidae.  Our method is applied below by The City Birder, Rob Jett.

Easy and relaxing, no?  Get out there and lie around and watch wood-warblers, would you?
