Bay-breasted Warbler, East Inlet Road, Pittsburg, NH, June 25, 2010

I made a recent trip up to Pittsburg, New Hampshire and had some great luck with tracking down the various boreal breeding warblers. Over the course of three days I managed to find a total nineteen species including the following: Nashville, Northern Parula, Yellow, Chestnut sided, Magnolia, Black-throated Blue, Black-throated Green, Yellow-rumped, Blackburnian, Palm, Bay-breasted, Blackpoll, Black and White, American Redstart, Ovenbird, Northern Waterthrush, Mourning Warbler, Common Yellowthroat, and Canada Warbler. Many of these species were quite common. Although I got some great looks I was not able to get as many good photos as I had wanted. It was nice to see all these species busily carrying food to nests as they raised the next generation in the 'Great North Woods'.
