Warbler of Indeterminate Kind


Recommended Posts

Hi all, this one is well beyond my abilities. Apparently, many warblers look like this example when they are immature males.  

Perhaps this is an:

1)  Immature Blackpoll Warbler

2) Immature Bay-breadted Warbler

3) Pine Warbler

4) Female Black-throated Blue Warbler

5) Immature Chestnut-sided Warbler

 

Obviously, I think it is some sort of Warbler ?  

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Location: Northern Illinois

Habitat: Mixed forest, Wild Cherry tree, neat a pond and brush-land. 

Date: Yesterday

Nice cherry tree.

If it was in my yard a few months ago, I would have called it a Ruby-Crowned Kinglet.  However, I'm know to mistake many a flycatcher for that species.

All that is my way of saying, "I don't think it's a warbler."  This is the kind of result you can expect when everyone competent / knowledgeable it out birding on a Saturday morning and you're stuck with me and my twisted ankle.

You should call it that even if it showed up in your yard today...

If an RCKI showed up in my SC yard today, I'd call everybody.

I actually had one this past Wednesday up at Mistletoe State Park, but didn't get a picture, so just didn't report it.

A Kinglet!!!  Of course!! Argh!

 

Until a month or two ago, I did not even know Kinglets existed.  Now, I see that they are not just another finch or sparrow or something. And they seem very prolific here.

 

Thank you all for the great feedback!  Yes, the cherries are finally blooming and it is so nice to see after such a cold, brutal winter. ?
