|Setophaga discolor||Order: Passeriformes||Family: Parulidae (New World Warblers)|
Laura saw her lifer Prairie Warbler along with her lifer Kirtland’s Warbler in the Grayling, Michigan, area in 1976. Kirtland’s Warblers are much more abundant now, but Prairie Warblers have disappeared from the area. The species is declining significantly throughout its range. Those in the mangroves of Florida (where Laura made her sound recordings) are considered a different subspecies.
