The city of Longmont’s Sandstone Ranch Park is just beyond the Boulder county line in Weld County 20 miles northwest of my apartment in south Boulder. Sharon and I had heard that warblers had arrived there so we did too.

We found them in these trees.

Where the Warblers Were

Many warblers are colorful birds. But for two reasons they are hardly my favorites. They are hard to identify and hard to photograph as they dart around quickly and hidden by the foliage. But as we waited patiently, this little one made one foray to the outer edge of the tree where I was able to get my camera focused on her in time.

You can hear the song of a Wilson’s Warbler by clicking here, courtesy of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. This comes from this university’s recordings of 14 species of songbirds that have lost more than half of their population during the past four decades.
