Townsend’s Warbler

Townsend’s warbler enjoying the beautiful sun after a few days of heavy rain in Southern California.
It has a yellow face with a black stripe across its cheeks extending into an ear patch, a thin pointed bill, two white wing bars, olive upperparts with black streaks on their backs and flanks, and a white belly. Adult males have a black cap, black throat and yellow lower breast; females have a dark cap and a yellow throat.

Need warbler ID!!!

Sorry for the bad photos! These little guys are so active that my camera lens can’t focus on them! I think it is either a Townsend or a Black-throated Green Warbler. Please comment below.

Warbler Galore! (Big Birding Day Part 2)

Sorry for the not-so-great pictures. Aside from the three kinds of warblers, I saw a European Starling, two Ospreys, robins, crows, Tree Swallows, Black-capped Chickadees, Downy Woodpeckers, and White-breasted Nuthatches.
