I hinted in the previous post I would offer up yet another quiz. Here it is.
First, the classic frustrating look most of us get of flitting, flighty warblers. I admit you can’t tell much from the “underneath” view but you can tell something. The picture grab is small but I’ll fill in some details. White belly giving way to a hint of yellow as you approach the head, white undertail with black tips.
This is perhaps the best view. It shows a bright yellow upper breast with a sort of darker collar. The two wing bars appear broad but short.
Head appears to be of a darkish color.
The dorsal view depicts an all-dark bird but its upper back is a quite bright olive green, nearly lime.
I won’t offer any hints per se; I’ll only mention I’ve only seen this bird three times in the fall. That should tell you they don’t travel the Red River Valley in great numbers.
