    Comments: Male, beautiful plumage. In the ravine. Clear sighting, sat on a branch right in front of me for a whole minute. Too bad I didn't have a camera! First I noticed it was from back and to the right and down, so the first markings I noticed were an almost solid gold wing bar and the triangular black throat lined in white. My first guess was a male Golden-winged, but I wouldn't have been able to confirm from that quick glimpse. I followed a small flock of Black-and-white's and Redstarts, and soon enough the Golden-winged reappeared. It sat on a branch about ten feet in front of me for about a minute, scratching it's tiny black beak against the branch. I got a clear look at the golden wing bars on the gray wings, the black throat, eyes and cheeks all surrounded with white, the pale belly, and the golden forehead. Very nice specimen with textbook markings! Too distinct to be confused with a Blue-winged, and I didn't notice any yellow coloration on the body that I assume would come with hybridization. I set out to find Blue-wings today, and, as another birder said, this was a nice consolation prize!
