We saw an Audubon's Warbler yesterday outside of its normal range, so I am curious about what their range is. I have tried searching, but can only find range maps for Yellow-rumped Warblers, but not one that shows just Audubon's. Do any of you know of such a thing?
Here is a picture of the little beauty. Most of the warblers were this cooperative. Must have been the chill in the air. The only birds giving us warbler neck were the raptors. :)
Sibley has a more detailed one including state lines (which makes visualising the distribution easier). Seems to be a fairly rare bird in Iowa, so a good find! Remember to submit it to your local bird recorder.
Thank you so much. I had looked on Wikipedia, but not at the right spot. We only have the Eastern guide for Sibley, so it doesn't have the map, but my husband was able to figure it out.
We were on a field trip and after most of us saw it, the leader made a call and also submitted it. Since we were able to get this picture, he asked me to post it to the rare birds album on the IOU site.
