Spring warblers: a birding rainbow!

You've heard of fall color in the north -- we all like to go "leaf-peeping" -- but if you want a blast of spring color in your birding, there's nothing that quite compares to watching spring warblers in eastern North America. The plumages of these magnificent birds are often brilliant, as shown in this fiery Blackburnian Warbler photographed by guide Tom Johnson. And there's so much variety to be seen, from Yellow to Cerulean to Chestnut-sided to Black-and-white and Black-throated Blue and two dozen more! It's truly a rainbow palette of birds to watch. Add in brightly dressed tanagers and grosbeaks, and it's eye candy galore.

Guide Tom Johnson developed our Pennsylvania's Warblers & More tour to make the most of this visual extravaganza with an itinerary that explores Tom's childhood birding haunts. It's the best of eastern migrants and breeders in just a 6-day tour!

Tom inaugurated the tour to great success in 2017, and he can wait to get back. He'll be joined by co-leader Micah Riegner (you'll be hearing much more about Micah in our 2019 schedule) as our group seeks out more than 140 species from warblers, tanagers, and grosbeaks to Bobolink, Upland Sandpiper, American Woodcock, Henslow's Sparrow, and much more. There are two spaces still available as of this writing. Contact our office if you'd like to join the Tom and Micah to experience some of the best eastern spring birding to be had anywhere.

Don't forget also to view our 2017 illustrated triplist at the link below. It will give you a great taste of last year's tour.
