We are having a very early migration this fall that started in early August. It's the best time of year for migrating warblers and we should expect to see them until late October.
We have already sighted 20 warbler species in our area this fall, compared to a record 34 species in 2011...that record will be hard to top! Some of the rare warblers found this fall were: Nashville, Bay-sided, Hooded, Worm-eating and Tennessee. Plus, a lot of American Redstarts have been seen.
Several 'hot spots' for migrants are Crystal Lake in Indigo Run and Lake Mary, inside the Sea Pines Forest Preserve. As of September 28th, migrating warblers have been seen at Crystal Lake 48 days and counting.
