The next two to three weeks will be the best time to see migrating warblers,
which will be coming north as the native trees bloom (chiefly maples and oaks).
They will be feeding on the insects which collect in the flowers.
As the leaves come out, the warblers will be harder to see.
Good places to find warblers are Skinner’s Butte and along the river,
like the Delta Ponds areas.
