Blackburnian Warbler

May 11, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

The Blackburnian Warbler is easy to find thanks to its striking good looks and easy to remember song, a rapid high pitched trill usually in two parts. It seems to prefer higher latitudes of mature forest in my area.

It has been observed engaged in territorial singing in Jerry Lawrence Provincial Park along with 18 other warbler species. This park was scheduled for destruction by the Department of Natural Resources. Why on earth are our parks not under the jurisdiction of the Department of the Environment where they should be? This is almost certainly petty politics and power grabbing.

Thanks to the effort of several people including myself this park has maintained its status as a provincial park and provided rich habitat for numerous warbler and flycatcher species.
