Warbler ID


All you better birders, can you help me with this fall warbler? I posted it in an ID group on FB and will probably eventually get an answer, but I am so impatient. I know the photos are lousy. It was high in our honey locust and hard to get a focus.



For handy, dandy reference, for the less warbler challenged than I, here is the nice page the FB group sent me to for ID.Nice page and I will get the book as soon as I get an Amazon card for doing surveys or something.


Warbler guide

******Hold the presses! The nice man at the FB group says that this is a Wilson's Warbler, a lifer for me....and lifers are scarce on the ground for someone who doesn't travel much. Also the second new bird for the Northview annual count in as many days. Yay!

Could it be a Wilson's Warbler?

CDH, that is what the FB guy decided. I am so excited! A lifer, right in the tree outside the kitchen. Made my day

My namesake Warbler :)

Cathy, I am beyond thrilled! Just double-plus delighted. And to think I nearly deleted the lousy photographs at least a dozen times.
