Last week I was doing a birding tour of the east and west slopes of Ecuador and encountered some warblers that have already made it to Ecuador. It is really amazing how far and how fast they can fly to improve the living conditions that assure their millenarian survival. Here are a couple of pictures of the birds that might have crossed your path and are now crossing my path a few thousand miles away.
Also I saw my first Black-and-white Warbler but I did not get a picture because my brain had trouble believing my eyes: I saw a bird that acted like a piculet, working the twigs upside down, but looked like a warbler. By the time I sorted out the confusion the warbler was gone.
Will you be visiting our hospitable country any time soon?
Beautiful bird! I especially like the American redstarts!
Hey that is great. I am glad they made it safely. The Blackburnian looks a lot like the one I saw in Magee Marsh. Great photos and post.
Great post! BTW, I saw all those four species (including B&W Warbler) a couple of weeks ago in Panama City’s Ancon Hill during their southward migration
Hi… how do you say Warbler in Spanish?
We send some “virtual” warbles from Pittsburgh, PA to Guayaquil, Ecuador. From one school to another as a cultural exchange. The paper warblers went to our students homes in Pittsburgh and had an experience the kids could write about and sent them to Ecuador. Now we await their response in the Spring when the real birds come back.
In Ecuador Warbler = Reininta
In Argentina Warbler = Arañero
And for sure it is called something different in every South American Country
