This morning we had a Black-and-white Warbler singing it's "wee-see-wee-see-wee-see" song as it moved through our woods.
Then we heard the Chestnut-sided Warbler's "pleased-pleased-pleased-to-meetcha" song.
We also heard a Magnolia Warbler singing and heard Northen Waterthrush near our pond. Warblers have been moving through here in southern NH every day. We have had lots and lots of Black-and-white Warblers, less numbers of some others. It's such a rich time of year for birdlife. We love to sit with coffee on the deck, first thing in the morning, and just listen and watch with our binos. It's my favorite time of day and I feel like I am connected to nature and in touch with the birds, even though I have to "go to work" and spend the rest of the day behind the computer.
It really helps if you learn the songs of some of these birds so you will know who is there. You will always hear more birds than you see at this time of year. Start with the easy songs, such as those of the Chestnut-sided Warbler and Black-and-white Warbler I mentioned above.
Try our Stokes Field Guide To Bird Song CDs to learn the bird's songs. You can even put them on your ipod.
