Answer to Bird Quiz #172 - Blackburnian Warbler

We offered one bird quiz during the month of May and got a ton of submissions and almost everyone got the answer correct! Out of the 23 correct answers, Jeremy Davis from Mukilteo, WA was selected randomly as the winner of a t-shirt.

How to Identify:

At first, it my seem that there is not much to identify this bird by. As we look closer, we notice that there are actaully several good field marks that are visable. Some of the visable marks include a large white patch on the wind, dark streaking on the side, and bright orange on the chest. The combination of these features should lead you to identify this as a Blackburnian Warbler.

Next Quiz:

We will be posting two quizzes during June. A winner will be selected from those that get the answers to both quizzes correct. The first quiz is posted at
