"Lawrence's" Warbler

For the past month or so, a "Lawrence's" Warbler has been seen at the Kay Environmental Center in Morris County. I got to see it on Saturday. This is the rarer of the two Golden-winged Warbler x Blue-winged Warbler hybrids - "Brewster's" Warbler is the other. It was singing the bee-buzz song of a Blue-winged Warbler. Neat bird! Learn more about Cornell's Golden-winged Warbler Atlas Project which also tracks hybrids.

Very pretty bird. It looks like he's sitting in a white birch. Is it?

It is indeed a white birch.

Sweet! Somehow both hybrids have managed to avoid me so far...

Patrick,
Awesome photos and fieldwork! I write a blog: http://www.snakeadventures.blogspot.com/ and I invite you to check it out. If you find it interesting, can we add each other to our bloglists? Let me know.
Thanks,
Robby
