SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Warblers are brightly marked birds that are heard much more often than they are seen. Because of their striking coloration and secluded habits, sightings of these birds are always notable events – even among experienced birders.

People can learn more about these interesting birds at the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) online program “Naturalist Notes: Wild Warblers Virtual Program.” This virtual program will be from 6-7 p.m. on April 9 and is being put on by the staff of MDC’s Springfield Conservation Nature Center. This program will not be recorded. People can register for this program at:


At this program, MDC Naturalist Morgan Wyatt will talk about the species of warblers that can be seen in Missouri, where they can be seen, and what part of the year they are here. This program is for all ages.
