Warbler Identification

Warblers are one of the most wonderful things about spring, but they can be tricky to identify. 

Learn how to identify these birds by using this Warbler Identification Guide which can help you learn to recognize these birds whether you see their faces, tails, or bellies! 


Try your skills at the Warbler ID Quiz...  The ID guide and quiz for warblers will be posted on the "Links" of this website for future reference.
