A Nashville Warbler visited a home in Madison today. This is an extraordinary record for December, 2014 so far. As of today, and for the entire month, eBird shows two reports of Nashville Warbler in Ontario, two in Virginia, a handful in California and a bunch in south Texas (as expected). That is all for the United States and Canada.

More Nashville Warblers may be found on Christmas Bird Counts (CBC). In 114 years of CBCs in New Jersey, Nashville Warbler has been recorded 22 years with 42 individuals (although it is uncertain if all counts are entered in the Audubon database). 4 separate individuals were recorded in 2013 and 2008 and represent the high number for this species. Remember, these numbers represent all of the CBCs in the entire state of New Jersey.
