The resources available to dedicated birders these days are phenomenal. There are daily reports being filed from stations further south. The location of rarities is documented and shared with a large on-line community. And experts share their hard-earned knowledge at sites such as http://www.giffbeaton.com/warblers.htm.
This is a really helpful resource for anyone who is learning how to sort out the many warblers that nest in or pass through our area. Many pictures, many tips for sorting out look-alikes. Good stuff! At least one person on-line said she accesses it in the field on her i-Phone.
