a few warblers from Chicagofrom October

Recommended Posts

1. and 2. Palm Warblers - Even though the amount of yellow on the undersides is variable, note the yellow undertail coverts, streaking on the sides, and prominent supercilium. Its distinctive behavior of tail-wagging can also confirm its ID. Orange-crowned Warblers would be much plainer in appearance, with a nondescript face and a lighter-colored back.

3. Yellow-rumped Warbler - note the compact appearance, streaking on the sides, and pale throat that wraps around the dark auriculars. Palm Warblers would be bulkier, have a different facial pattern, and have yellow (not white) undertail coverts.
