Tennessee Warbler confirmation.


Recommended Posts

This is actually a Red-eyed Vireo. Note the olive-green above, whitish below, no wingbars, dark stripes through the eye and above the eye, thick bill, and white eyebrow. The red eye is not always easy to see due to the lighting.

Tennessee Warblers lack the black stripe above the eye and have a thinner bill.

Sometimes reviewers get busy or behind. It might take weeks or even months but there is no doubt it will be confirmed. Here is a recent shot I got from above, showing the olive back and gray crown with the dark lines at the edge of the crown, which are visible on your bird. Also note the blue feet, which are a good mark for vireos. I hate when I have a bird flagged as rare and didn't manage to get a photo. But you'll be fine with your shot.
