PIC OF THE WEEK: 06/07/10 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2010 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Prairie Warbler

(Dendroica discolor)

Where: Powhatan, VA • Powhatan Wildlife Management Area

Notes: Most often my forays begin by looking for a particular species or target-bird, I ask my self, "Where will I find this bird?" The answer is usually another question: "Is there a specific habitat that the species prefers? If so, where is that?" This ultimately determines where I go. This species is a breeding season resident of the eastern and south-central United States. In the case of the Prairie Warbler, a recently clear-cut scrubby area with new growth, sprinkled with young pines, is usually a good place to start. For this reason, I felt it important to try and capture some images with this species perched on one of these young pines. After all, the best pictures tell a story. Each year the males arrive in their newly molted spring plumage and begin singing from a favorite perch in this preferred territory. The regularity of a specific bird to a specific habitat, reminds me how sensitive most species populations are based on this linkage to a given area. This is why it is so important that the birds who have such location specific needs, have their habitats protected or managed. A few of the other birds found in this type of habitat include Indigo Bunting, Blue Grosbeak, White-eyed Vireo, Yellow-breasted Chat and Common Yellowthroat and Field Sparrow.
