Warbler Guy, I'm heading to Alaska in June, 2014. Which warblers nest in Alaska? Alaska warblers are common? Warbler watching in Alaska is easy?

Jodie, I'm lucky to note that I've birded on one (too brief) vacation in Alaska.

The most typical nesting New World wood-warblers (Parulidae family) there include:

- Blackpoll
- Yellow
- Orange-crowned
- Northern Waterthrush
- American Redstart
- Common Yellowthroat
- Wilson's
- Yellow-rumped
- McGillivray's
- Townsend's

The Dusky Warbler (in the Leaf Warbler family) is also present.

Does this help?

Regards from Daniel, your Marin County, California birding guide

Yes, but none there now....and I think Dusky is the last one to arrive from Russia or the west....weird!

I am always seeing Blackpoll there, but never American Redstart.
