Warbler Guy, where do I see a list of Rare Bird Alert posts for early returning migrants? Is there a composite bird listserv web site?

Sharlene (in New York), feel free to see:

I often use this site when traveling and wish to stay abreast of uncommon/rare bird addition to knowing where and when migrants (such as wood-warblers) are being seen.

Warbler Guy, when is Nashville Warbler seen in the San Francisco Bay area? Is Nashville Warbler common in the San Francisco Bay Area?

Jill (in Cupertino), Nashville Warbler is absent to uncommon in the San Francisco Bay area, though in late summer, autumn and winter several documented sightings exist.


October is the most common month for Nashville sightings to occur, with many reported from the Outer Point within Point Reyes National Seashore.

Currently, an ongoing Nashville is being seen in Bodega Bay (Sonoma County) next to Diekmann's Deli (vegetation below parking lot).

In total: Consider the Nashville Warbler as a transient/migrant in the San Francisco Bay Area.
