The Palm Warbler
Location: Anchorage, AK – 4700 Elmore Road (The MOA Permit Office)
First Seen: October 18, 2012
Last Seen: October 19, 2012
Discovered by: Thede Tobish
Relative Rarity: Thede says Palm Warblers are “a common rarity” in Alaska. “1 or 2 are found every year all over the state.” This, however, is only the 2ndrecord in our part of the state. The first was 2 years ago when Luke DiCicco discovered a deceased Palm Warbler on the sidewalk of the Girdwood gas station.
Information: On Wednesday, October 17 2013, Thede posted on AK Birding: “I’ve started checking chickadee flocks for late migrants.” 21 hours later, he found a Palm Warbler.
