Confirming magnolia warbler


Recommended Posts

There’s been one at this location for a few days. I saw it after sunset( why does that always happen to me?) and my iso was way up. I’m hoping based on the under tail pattern, we can confirm it. In person( without a blurry photo), it had a grayish head. 
thanks

today Orange County, Ca. 
thanks

You've been getting some great birds lately!

Thanks, there’s been a lot of rarity’s coming through my county that I’ve been chasing. I still haven’t had a self found rarity yet, though. Unfortunately.

I've been chasing a lot lately as well! Sadly, none of it has been in my county. I think all the east coast rarities have purposely been avoiding Sacramento!

Could you guys at least send a couple western warblers over here?!?! I’d very much like a Black-throated Gray, but I understand if it has to be a Townsend’s. 

Massachusetts had both a MacGillivray's and Black-throated Gray recently.

That may as well be the west. Nowhere near Michigan!!! Seriously though, that's awesome, I didn't hear about that. Did you get to see either of them?

No. I'm way down in Georgia. Sigh.

Townsends are uncommon ( in my experience), and black throated gray and fairly common( in my experience. )

this is my experience in my area.

Black-throated Gray sing a LOT during the spring so I have a much easier time finding them than Townsend’s, but I get Townsend’s at my suet feeder all winter.
