Blackburnian warbler.



Not the best photo I've taken of this warbler species but a really nice surprise while walking a trail.

Five species of warblers have warblers have been seen in the last few days along with other spring migrants.

Setophaga fusca

No other North American warbler has an orange throat

The Blackburnian Warbler is territorial on its breeding grounds and solitary in the winter. It forms flocks only during migration.
