Abstract

Information indicates that a substantial number of breeding birds remain in Michigan through September, and a few individuals probably remain into early October. Migration apparently consists of two waves of migrants: an early departure (mid-August to early September); and late departure (late September). Based on our findings, we recommend that major Kirtland's warbler areas be kept closed into mid-September.
