SEPTEMBER

MAGNOLIA WARBLER

The Magnolia Warbler is a member of the wood warbler family. It is a small very acitive warbler that can be easier to see than most warblers since it prefers to stay in low shrubs and trees.

Maggies as birders refer to them forage by hopping along branches gleaming insects from the undersides of leaves, and twigs.

Male Magnolia Warblers are black and yellow and sport a bold black necklace complete with long tassels, black mask and white wing patch. The female lack the male's bold accoutrments instead she has a white eyering on a gray head, 2 thin wing bars and yellow underparts with moderate streaking.

Magnolia Warblers do not use backyard feeders and may only stop in your yard during migration. To help them along their journey and perhaps get a look at one you can plant native plants and shrubs in your yard which will provide an excellent place for the insects they love to eat.
