|Blackburnian Warbler (BLBW)|
The facial markings and wing bars are clue to this species.
|Back of BLBW|
|Note wing bar and streaked breast|
Adult female with split white eye-ring
|Wilson's Warbler - male|
Nice adult female with slate gray bill and fine red streaks on breast
This is not the same bird as we showed you above, but it is the same species.
|Note: thin pointed bill on small rounded head compared to most warblers which have |
larger bills and heads
|Breast of this species always has fine streaking in both spring and fall season|
|Quiz bird revealed: Cape May Warbler (CMWA)|
Adult male in this photo. On most CMWAs in fall you notice a
shadow of their auricular patch (cheek).
Numbers of birds should continue to increase this coming week as the Blackpoll begins to arrive in volume. Thrushes will also increase and we will provide a comparison of our brown thrushes next week in this Blog.
The coming week may also the last of some of the flycatchers, orioles and CSWA, CAWA, and YEWA. Enjoy the beauty of the season!
