For the first three weeks in May, we (in eastern Nebraska) experience the fascinating phenomenon of warbler migration. Wood warblers are small, colorful perching birds that breed throughout North America and winter anywhere from the southern U.S. to the tropics, depending on the species. In all, about 48 different species of wood war-blers are regularly found in the U.S., and 41 of them can possibly be found somewhere in Nebras-ka. The Missouri River valley adjacent to eastern Nebraska provides a primary migration route for many eastern wood warblers, and about 35 species can be found in this area alone.
