Ken and I went to Lindsay-Parsons Biodiversity Preserve for a few hours this morning and found many warblers. Near the kiosk at the start of the trail, we both saw a warbler fly into a small tree. It had a prominent yellow patch on the wing.The bird was gray overall, with white at the side of the throat. We could not see the top of the head. And then it flew off. We looked in vain for some time to see if we could refind it, but did not succeed. We are both convinced that it was a female golden-winged warbler. We hope others who go to Lindsay-Parsons may be able to find this bird.
It was a great place to find other warblers too; we saw/heard multiple Blue-winged Warblers, Common Yellowthroats, Yellow, Black-and-White, Yellow-rumped, and Prairie Warblers and one American Redstart. Both Solitary and Spotted Sandpipers were at Coleman Lake. Ruffed Grouse were drumming at two different locations, and two Yellow-throated Vireos were giving their burry calls.
