Female Yellow Warbler


Recommended Posts

At Jones Beach, NY, today, there were a few species of warbler feeding in flowering shrubs (maybe Beach Plums). I saw Northern Parulas, Yellow Warblers, and a male Wilson's Warbler. Other birders also saw a Nashville Warbler. I took these 2 shots 28 seconds apart and I'm not certain they show the same bird. The head appears to be darker, more olive, than the breast. Is it a female Yellow Warbler?

Thanks,

I didn't even think of orioles. I've seen some males around lately but this is my first shot of a female. My shots of males were even more obstructed by foliage as they were higher in trees. I was also lucky to get my first shots of Rose-breasted Grosbeaks (male and female) today in the same shrubs.
