I took a total of six trips out of the area this year which was a new high for me. The trips included the following: Florida in January, Arizona in April, Ohio in May, California in September, Texas in November and Costa Rica in December. Each of these trips had there own highlights that I cover in greater detail on my other blog http://quabbinbirdingandbeyond.blogspot.com/ . As far as warblers were concerned this year I managed to end the year with a total of 47 species of wood warblers.

Of the 47 species seen this year I added five which I had never seen before including Kirtland Warbler in Michigan which I found on a day trip during my Ohio trip. Although it was a long drive and I didn’t get any photos of the birds it was nice to see and hear them on their breeding grounds. I also added Virginia's Warbler and Grace's Warbler in Arizona as well as Gray-crowned Yellowthroat and Buff-rumped Warbler in Costa Rica.
