Re: mystery warbler

Blair & Tweeters,
The 3 photos show a drab Common Yellowthroat. I handle a lot of birds with
bird-banding trainees and this particular plumage of Common
Yellowthroat--spring female, likely a second-year (end of first cycle) that
wintered in a high-wear environment (i.e., lots of bleaching sun in
abrasive veg) and replaced few feathers in the pre-alternate spring
molt--seems to trip up even seasoned trainees more than any other bird we
catch. That's because under close inspection you start to see all kinds of
other features, like eye ring or supercilium, color on the forehead, gray
tones, etc. But reliable features are the stolid legs (larger band size!),
the substantive beak, and the graduated tail, all apparent in B's images,
that together aren't shared with other regional species. The orange wash
on the fore crown is actually typical of most of these individuals and the
gray tones are apparent on worn individuals without much spring feather
replacement. I've seen more such individuals misidentified in well-used
museum collections than any other individual plumage ; >

Best,
Dan Froehlich

This morning was gorgeous. I went to Oso Loop Road and immediately heard
the Male American Redstart singing. It was in a tree immediately above my
parked car. It was very, songful and photogenic the whole time I was there
- perching on both sides of the road right at the Mystic Mountain nursery.
While there I photographed a fairly drab warbler which I thought was a
female or immature Common Yellowthroat at the time. Now at home looking at
photos I am not so sure. Yellow on the throat and wings doesn't seem to
fit. Nashville? Tennessee? Common Yellowthroat after all? Other? Any
help would be greatly appreciated. I have uploaded the three best photos
onto Flickr here.

There were numerous Swainson's Thrushes calling and singing at the Redstart
site.
