Blackburnian Warbler (Setophaga fusca), Alchesay National Fish Hatchery, Navajo County
This Blackburnian Warbler was
found by Vic Nelson and Eric Hough and photographed by Eric Hough on 18 September 2015
First record for Navajo County and one of the most
infrequently reported vagrant eastern North American
warblers in the state, with a total of 21 records
endorsed by the ABC. The vast majority of the records fall
between late September and late October (most of these
are from the first three weeks in October), but there
are also a few mid-May and late June sightings as well.
Yellow-orange wash across the breast and face
which surrounds the dark auriculars. Broad yellow
supercillium and partial eye ring, dark breast and flank
streaking all help identify this warbler.
