Yesterday evening I found a Yellow-throated Warbler in a small wooded park on the shore of Lake Norman, just north of Davidson Day School. Interesting because of it's rarity in winter, but also because this is about a mile from where a Yellow-throated Warbler was seen on the Davidson College campus earlier this winter. Same bird ? The Davidson College bird was seen Dec. 16, during the Southern Lake Norman CBC. I also saw it in early January, in the same area it was originally found.
Yesterday the bird was foraging at times on the ground, associating with a couple Golden-crowned Kinglets. The plumage appears in very good condition. Just interesting to speculate what the odds are that this is the same bird a mile away, or another individual. Right now I am leaning toward it being the same bird - but would interested in learning if one can still be found on the college campus.
