I know it seems early, but now is the time that a lot of Michigan warblers begin migrating.
nests in Upper Peninsula and Canada, but migrates through mid-Michigan
from mid-August to October on its way south. They like to winter in open
second growth forests and agricultural habitats, like shade grown coffee plantations in Mexico to Venezuela.
Tennessee Warblers have muted olive/yellow upper feathers, yellow eyebrows and
dark eye-stripes, and all pale yellow under feathers except for white
under tail coverts. But their voice
is very loud and difficult to miss. Alexander Wilson named the bird
after spotting it along the Cumberland River in Tennessee but it was
discovered later it only passes through that state during migration.
The birds eat a lot of bugs and berries and at your feeder might enjoy suet and fruit. For more in-depth information on this mysterious bird click HERE to visit the Migratory Bird Center Website.
