There were 1,805 pairs of Kirtland’s Warblers found in Michigan this year, second only to 2009’s 1,813.  The population has stabilized with neither increases nor decreases of greater than five percent since 2007.  A couple dozen pairs also nest in neighboring states and provinces.  Of course, Kirtland’s Warbler isn’t out of danger and won’t be for a very, very, very, long time, if ever, but this is a bit of bright news.
