Mystery warbler

Among the various warblers today on a trip into central Quabbin I came across this one. It was in a mixed species flock I pished in. I have my thoughts on it but would love to hear other opinions. The yellow band around the mid section was brighter than the photo shows (sorry best photo I could get of it). I have a couple other photos but this is the best of the bunch. Among the other warbler highlights today was a total of 13 species including a late Louisiana Waterthrush, an Overbird that almost flew into me and many juvenile birds among the adults.


  1. Hi Larry,

    I will stick my neck without a field guide ;)...I will try Pine Warbler. Perhaps in a "ratty" stage of molting.


  2. I would agree with you Tom. I ID'd it as a Pine Warbler too...warblers are always fun to try to ID.
