Warbler ID Quiz

This picture was taken (not by me) on Saturday, May 10, at Sandy Hook here in New Jersey. We missed seeing this bird on the World Series of Birding. Do you know what it is?

Wow, if that's what I think it is, that's a pretty phenomenal bird for New Jersey...

Is that a Townsend's?

That's what it looks like to me. Yeah, great bird for NJ!

Is it in the same tree that the Cape May you saw was?

Patrick Belardo said...

It's in a Beach Plum, yes. Not the same one (unless I was blind). There are a ton of them blooming now.

I'll wait for a few more responses to give the answer.

Don't tell me you were in the general area and missed out on this (female?) Townsend's?
Please, Patrick, after that frustrating post about you being stuck at home/office and the great birds you had missed before at Sandy Hook, you just can't have missed that one as well?
