Golden-winged Warbler (Vermivora chrysoptera) (1)
- Reported Sep 09, 2020 07:10 by Linda Ewing
- Checklist:
- Comments: "Edge of Butterfly Meadow, found by Max E, who has pictures. Female I believe - washed-out dark throat and mask; crown dullish gold, as though dusted w pollen; bright yellow patches on wings; underside/flanks pale with no yellow. Disappeared in the undergrowth for long periods, then emerged to feed in tree branches (took me a while to see it). At the time I saw it, it was with an active group of vireos & other warblers."
