Congrats!

I'm not even familiar with a black and white warbler (or most other warblers for that matter)...but we did have a phoebe nest here a few years ago--that is the only reason I know what it is (I had to look it up).

Thanks I'm an avid birder. This is migration time so I hope to see lots of different birds. There is a hawk watch going on all fall I hope to get to. Also the local bird club is having a gathering at Conowingo dam in Maryland in November. It Is a hydroelectric dam and the fish there attract nesting bald eagles. We usually see a lot of them as well as other birds.

I just heard something on NPR this morning about the successful comeback of bald eagles. I know how thrilled I was to see my first just miles from our home. I've seen them a few more times since...and once I saw one fly through the edge of our yard.

Ddt significantly decreased numbers of bald eagles. When Ddt was banned bald eagles made a comeback. I'm glad you see them around your home. They are so magnificent.

So many warblers this morning in my backyard! We had a cold front come through yesterday that helped a lot of migratory birds come down from the north across Lake Eire. My fall warbler ID skills are average at best but so far this morning I've seen some yellow- rumped warblers, possibly a Tennessee and a Canada warbler

Yes, they are one of the best success stories--or so I've read.

I wish they'd come back to nest here...but after the first year, I did a little house repair which ended up removing the little ledge that they used to build the nest. (I put up other ledges elsewhere, but no luck.)

Congrats on your warblers. I'm guessing they'll be coming through here too (if not already, before too long). I don't think I have any ID skills...but I do have a bird book if I see something I don't recognize.
