If you were to wait for the arrival of fall to see southbound warblers in your backyard, you would truly be disappointed. When it comes to warblers, some them actually begin their fall migration in July. It is also a fact that most of the warblers that pass through Georgia begin their journey south before the end of August.
There are 47 species of warblers that nest throughout North America and winter in the Caribbean, Mexico, and points south. Scores of these pass through the Peach State en route to their wintering grounds. Remarkably, many of these birds can be spotted in our backyards during the summer.
Here is a list of ten warblers that you might see visiting your birdbaths and feeding in the trees and shrubs gracing your yards this month: hooded warbler, American redstart, black-and-white warbler, yellow-throated warbler, Tennessee Warbler, Northern parula, Wilson’s warbler, magnolia warbler, bay-breasted warbler, and common yellowthroat.
