Birders Spy Rare Prothonotary Warbler...For the Second Time!

warbler.jpgAlain Clavette and Roger Leblanc may be the luckiest birders around! This week they spotted a rare Prothonotary Warbler near an abandoned farmhouse east of Alma. Sightings of the little songbird are so rare in New Brunswick that they have only been recorded 15 times since 1862! It just so happens that two of those sightings belong to this birding duo! (Thanks to Alain for the great pictures!)
