This is one of 34 images that will be on display through April 27, 2024 at

Powder Valley Conservation Nature Center.


Wood Warblers have often been called the gems of the forests, the butterflies of the bird world. Their arrival is highly anticipated in spring

as they move through our area along the Mississippi Flyway from central and south America to their breeding grounds.

This migration is a wholly American phenomenon! The wood warblers are only found in the Americas

and their adjacent islands in the Western Hemisphere.

They are considered Missouri birds because they spend part of their lives every spring and fall here in our state.




I would like to thank the staff at Powder Valley Conservation Nature Center

for inviting me to display this collection.

It is truly a joy to be able to share my images of these beautiful neotropical migrants,

which I've been photographing since 2003 in our Shady Oaks yard. 


The exhibit is free! You are invited to stop in at Powder Valley, stroll through the Art Hallway

and see these beauties up close.  


The area is open every day, but building hours are restricted, see below or check the website for

Thank you, Connie! My hope is that these beautiful birds will capture the hearts of the viewers, as they have ours!

All the best,

Margy, many of us have had the pleasure of visiting your yard on tours, where we have seen how dedicated you and Dan are to providing a way station for these neotropical migrants. Hurray for both of you. Your photographs of these warblers are a must see.
