18 Sep Welcome Back | Sept 2015
They’re here again.
In this case, “They” are the warblers that migrate into Orange County, California, for the winter.
So we can welcome back these beautiful birds.
The bird in the photo is a Wilson’s Warbler, male. Notice that he has a shiny black cap. (The female has a muted dark cap.)
So if you see one, call out, “Welcome back!”
