Mystery Bird Quiz #5


Here's another birding-brain teaser for you. This photograph was taken in my yard in southeastern Ohio in early October.

Here's a closer look:

I'll have the answer here in a day or so. Good luck!

Is it a Blackburnian warbler?

I'll say Cape May Warbler.

I'll throw out a guess: Black-throated Green Warbler

I'm going to go with Blackpoll Warbler.

One of you is correct. Any second opinions out there?

These are getting tougher! I feel like I'm looking at 'Hidden Pictures' in Highlites magazine! So I guess it's not an ivory-billed, eh?

I'll second Eva's motion: Black-throated Green?

Wow, I'm really glad I didn't post a guess this morning, because I was torn between - no, I can't say, it's too embarrassing. Suffice it to say, neither bird was a warbler, nor were they even in the same basic group. :O

If the answer is one of the 4 posted already, I am going to go with Cape May, only because I trust Ethan implicitly. (Ethan, dude - don't let me down!)

Your bird quizzes just keep getting harder! I'll put in a third guess for Blackpoll warbler, but I don't see how in this pose you can tell Blackpoll warbler from Bay-breasted warbler.

Wow, my initial guess was wrong, apparently.
So I'll go with Blackpoll Warbler.

Oooo, I know this one! It's the elusive Sideways-eating green-backed warbler!
