Canada Warbler at Jerry Lawrence Provincial Park

May 23, 2015

I have found the Canada Warbler at Jerry Lawrence Provincial Park on territory in two locations, so far. I expect more Canada Warblers will set up housekeeping as this is still early in their migration. These birds are easy to find thanks to their distinctive and musical song.

As of May 21 there are only 13 warbler species on territory in Jerry Lawrence Provincial Park with the notable absence of the American Redstart although I did find the American Redstart in Oakfield Provincial Park on May 18. Stay tuned!

Courtesy of Wikepedia:

Canada warblers' numbers have declined due to loss of suitable habitat and the species has been assessed as "threatened" by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada.[4] The IUCN, however, ranks the Canada warbler as a species of least concern.[1]

The Canadian population, which accounts for 85% of the global population, is estimated at roughly 2.7 million individuals.[3]

The Canada warbler is protected at the federal level in both Canada and the United States.[3]

Canada warblers have been seen twice in Europe. The first record was seen in Iceland, and the second was of a first-winter female which was found in Kilbaha, County Clare, Ireland in October 2006.
