Likely Warbler Lifer

Recommended Posts

I saw this warbler in Yoho NP, BC on 8/8/19. It was in the middle of a bush, making high-pitched cheeping sounds. Sorry for the horrible picture - the bird was in the middle of the bush, so AF didn't work, then I went to MF and tried to get a picture before it moved. The bill was thin, like a normal warbler beak. The bird was very sulky sitting in the bush, moving very occasionally. I sometimes couldn't even see it. Any ideas? I was thinking maybe an Orange-crowned, which would be a lifer. Pretty much the only picture I have. No audio recordings. Thanks as always.

Based on the vocalization alone, all I can offer is a recently fledged bird that is hanging around near its nest calling for food from the parents. Were adult birds around? Youngsters of all species will make a ruckus for more food, exposing them to predators.

Thanks. Yeah, this probably was a juvenile/immature. I could not see any parents around. The only other warbler that I saw looked like a Yellow/Wilson's Warbler.
