These photos constitute odd or unexpected birds seen this morning. I'm pretty sure the first one is a fall Blackpoll, but I found the beak to be more finch-like. I can't really tell the color of the feet.
I certainly wasn't expecting this lovely fall Magnolia at Virginia River. Warblers are definitely moving in to the area.
This one has me stumped! It was a wire sitter, could have easily been mistaken for a robin. The streaking, square tail and pointed beak add up to a total unknown for me. Hope someone can help.
This warbler must be a Wilson's. The tail sure looks like a Wilson's but I have never seen one with such dark coloring on the face and in front of the eye. I checked female Hooded Warbler, but I think the tail discounts that. If this is not a Wilson's, please let me know.
An interesting morning out there. I was also very surprised to see the American Bittern at Virginia Lake.
