Barrington, Illinois — Crabtree Nature Center
This is the 61st lifer I saw at Crabtree, the most for any one spot.
The Pine Warbler was in the woods near Crabtree Lake. It flew to the small grove of pines and foraged around a little while near the tops of the branches about 15 feet above the ground. It then flew, branch to branch, through the oaks toward a nearby clearing, often walking lengthwise along the branches. It moved slowly for a warbler.
