Blackpoll Warbler returns to St. John's
This little female warbler was photographed in Goulds. From the colors and general markings on this bird, I was pretty sure that it was a Blackpoll. However, when I began looking on-line for an exact match, I couldn't find one. I began to doubt myself and sent the photo to someone who would know for sure. He confirmed that it is, indeed, a Blackpoll and added that female Blackpolls are rarely accurately illustrated in many resources.
