Warbler Guy, given you're in the SF Bay Area (and so am I), do you teach adult classes? If so, where? Thanx

Thanks Devon...."Yes," please note my current "Bird Songing: The Ecology Of Birds' Songs & Identifying Them By Ear" is attended by 30 students at Merritt College (

In fact, I'm hosting another field trip today, so need to soon scoot.

Warblers we will pursue and are most likely to see?:

- Yellow-rumped (some still remain, perhaps, though abundance level is reduced; most of the plentiful non-breeding season individuals have left for breeding territory)

- Wilson's (abundant in riparian/bottomland areas) on territory and, also, some as transients moving toward breeding territory but "laying over" during the day to forage

- Townsend's (ala Yellow-rumped, some still remain, but most have left for breeding territory elsewhwere)

- Common Yellowthroat (locally common in suitable moist and/or marsh-like habitat)

- Black-throated Gray (often present amid drier habitat, if in breeding territory)

- Nashville (a transient is possible)

- Hermit (recent arrivals are now here in the SF Bay Area)
