Mourning Warbler, Rensselaerville State Forest

zach schwartz-weinstein

I found a male Mourning Warbler singing on territory in appropriate breeding habitat in Rensselaerville State Forest this morning.  I stayed on the bird for close to an hour and did not see a female at any point, so my guess is that this bird is prospecting, but who knows.  Unlike the second year male that hung around Partridge Run for a while in 2015, this bird was in adult plumage.  Photo and audio on my EBird checklist.
