Must be a wintering bird as likely too early for a migrant.
Some years ago Townsends wintering in Oregon were assigned as breeders from the Queen Charlotte Islands, BC https://www.jstor.org/stable/1367976?seq=1 I also wonder about the current acceptance of this distribution.
Would this make it a Hermit Warbler intergrade? There doesn't seem to be much else to indicate Hermit Warbler? Is it a transitional molt stage? Hopefully Mr. Pyle might comment? Thanks to all for any assistance.
