Many warblers can be seen in North Dakota during spring and fall migrations.  Warblers are difficult to photograph, especially when flying.

Yellow warblers nest here during the summer.  They winter in Central America and northern South America.  Yellow warblers are found widely in North America including the summer Arctic.  They feed on insects.  Nests include 1 to 7 eggs and they can have two broods in a season.

The chipping sparrow is a species of American sparrow, a passerine bird in the family Passerellidae. It is widespread, fairly tame, and common across most of its North American range. There are two subspecies, the eastern chipping sparrow and the western chipping sparrow. This bird is a partial migrant with northerly populations flying southwards in the fall to overwinter in Mexico and the southern United States, and flying northward again in spring.


Yellow-rumped warblers spend the breeding season in mature coniferous and mixed coniferous-deciduous woodlands (such as in patches of aspen, birch, or willow). In the western U.S. and in the central Appalachian Mountains, they are found mostly in mountainous areas.
