Confirmation please - Bay-breasted warbler?


Recommended Posts

Yes, these are nonbreeding adult/immature Bay-breasted Warblers. Note the large, bulky appearance. While breeding males have a black face, tan patch on the neck, and chestnut crown, throat, and flanks, breeding females are duller. Nonbreeding females/immatures often have peachy flanks, a yellow-green head, and unstreaked underparts. Nonbreeding males have chestnut flanks and streaked upperparts.

The similar Blackpoll Warbler has orange legs/feet.
