Which Warbler? - UTRGC Campus, Brownsville, TX (Resaca Habitat near Social Flycatcher hangout) - 3/27/22

Recommended Posts

Not necessarily arguing any longer that this specimen is different than an Orange-crowned, but looking at these photos, if one were trying to differentiate between an Orange-crowned and a female MacGillivray's, for example, what would one actually be looking for, apart from sound?  The bird above was extremely skulky - much more so than a typical Orange-crowned encounter, but beyond that, visually looks fine for an Orange-crowned to me here.  And, to be clear, given that they're much more statistically likely just about anywhere including this spot, I'm definitely going with that ID in this case.

If I can't find features to indicate another warbler species, I default to Orange-crowned.

Charlie, after re-reading your initial response, it seems like a more than adequate response to my subsequent question.  Thanks again!
