Thank you for your submissions!!
This week's bird is a Bay-breasted Warbler!! Based on the size of the bird compared to my hand, we can tell that for a warbler, it is fairly large. The tail is short and bill narrow, ruling out Pine Warbler. That leaves us with Blackpoll or Bay-breasted Warbler and the dark feet confirm Bay-breasted. It has vague streaking on the back and a slight tinge of bay on the sides. This bird was identified as a hatch-year male based on plumage and molt.
This photo was taken at Splinter Hill Bog (Baldwin County), Alabama on October 22nd.
Those who guessed Bay-breasted Warbler get 3 points, those who guessed any species in Setophaga get 2 points, and anyone who guessed any species in the family Parulidae gets 1 point. 1 additional point is awarded to those who guessed hatch year and 1 additional point is awarded to those who guessed male.
