Pine or Blackpoll?

Recommended Posts

Thanks.  So when looking at the orange color, Blackpoll have orange legs and feet but other warblers may have orange soles/bottom of feet?  Also, would a Pine also have an all-black bill or does that vary by individual?

Sorry, I meant pale feet as the mark to differentiate from Bay-breasted, which is what we tell people to look for.  I see now you're asking about Pine.  Pine Warblers have a slightly thicker bill and less of an eyeline, and they're usually either quite dull or bright yellow on most of the underparts.  Blackpoll tend to have more distinct streaking underneath, but that's somewhat variable and depends on the angle, and they tend to be brightest on the throats and upper breast.
