Kirtland's Warbler

This endangered species had been reduced to fewer than 200 pairs when Laura started birding in 1975, but with protection from the Endangered Species Act, habitat in Michigan has been restored and maintained, and cowbird control has permitted breeding birds to raise their own young successfully. Now a few Kirtland’s Warblers are nesting in Ontario and Wisconsin. Laura has seen them during fall migration at Lake Kissimmee State Park in Florida, and during spring migration at Magee Marsh in Ohio.
