mfoster.vt Posted September 24, 2018 Share Posted September 24, 2018 I came across a small group of birds today that my first impression was of Ruby-Crowned Kinglets, but the birds seemed too big for this. I concentrated on getting photos, so could not pick out details well through my view finder. This group of birds were in a couple isolated small trees in the middle of some wide open fields. That coupled with them being in a small flock of 8 or more, made me think of kinglets as I have often seen groups of kinglets together. With my impression of size and the photos, I now think that maybe most were Pine Warblers, but that last bird has me stumped, as there are no wing bars. Totally surprised to find warblers in these isolated trees. Most of the birds looked like these. Distinct wing bars and an eye line with arcs of eye rings which all seem to match Pine. This bird looks very similar to the others, but lacks the wing-bars. The faint streaking on the breast must point to another warbler, but I can't figure it out.
