Fall Blackpoll Warbler
What is it about the warbler that makes it more difficult than other warblers? Well, it is a chameleon of sorts as it undergoes many changes over a short period of time.
Do take the time to search for other postings that I have made regarding this bird to see the many faces of the Blackpoll. Just type Blackpoll in the search box and the top three items show pictures of Blackpolls with the most variation. One of these days I will pull all of the different images together in one post for quick reference.
Looking at these pictures and then looking outside today makes me long for summer. Clearly we have a long winter ahead but the unusual birding opportunities just keep coming like the Sora still at Kent Pond and the Horned Grebe sitting in fresh water in the middle of town! What happened there? I was told that this is an experience of a lifetime.
