Observer: Paul Lauenstein
Observation Date: 5/28/23
Observation Time: 11:50 a.m.
Observation Location: Moose Hill Farm (TTOR) – under the power lines
Common Name: Prairie Warbler
Scientific Name: Setophaga discolor
Comments: Prairie warblers are found in scrubby fields and forest edges throughout the eastern and south-central United States. Unlike many other warblers that migrate through Sharon in spring and fall, the prairie warbler nests in Sharon and hangs around all summer. You can find them in brushy areas under power lines, especially if you learn to recognize their ascending trill. This habitat is also good for indigo buntings.
