I have never seen this warbler on our property before yesterday. Their summer distribution is north of us, across Canada from coast-to-coast, and from Alaska down through the US Rocky Mountains. But I've only ever run into a couple. They look a lot like a fall Tennessee, but I see a lot of those and knew this was different. It took a bit of ID work to figure it out, however. One sure sign is that they sport yellow undertail coverts as opposed to the white of a Tennessee. It is said that their lack of identifying characteristics is, in fact, a clue to their identity. Also, the orange crown is seldom seen, even less frequently than the ruby-crowned kinglet.

I like your first one, Alan. We get these a lot and I've only seen the crown maybe three times.

Very nice. I have only seen two of these birds so have never been lucky enough to see the crown. I was lucky enough a few weeks ago to get a few nice photos of one and as you stated, the first thing I narrowed down from the Sibley's Book was they sport yellow undertail coverts and the eye-ring was broken with that tiny black spot.

Great shots. I got lucky and was able to take a series of shots of one a couple of weeks ago. I had a tough time IDing it also. Congrats

Thank you all very kindly. I actually caught a glimpse of the orange in one I saw last spring, but it was very brief.

Well done Al. Must have been a challenge to get a focus in those needles.
