I was taking Dave Gaylor and Kim Kuska up the west ramp to the top of the hill supporting the large waterfall when I mentioned to Dave that this was a good time of year and the pines on this hillside has been a good location for finding Black-and-white Warbler. About ten minutes later when we reached the top of the down ramp on the other side of the waterfall Dave (an excellent eye birder) said out loud, "There's your Black-and-white Warbler." Kim and I quickly joined Dave in viewing this Black-and-white Warbler which was an adult female: white throat and upper chest, light on the side of the face, black and white bars on the back, black and white wingbars, dark streaking on sides. This bird preferred to work low on the trunks of the pine trees on the bank of the hill above the lake. But, it spent considerable time working the thick pine bows as it was repeatedly chased into them by both an adult male Yellow-rumped "Audubon's" Warbler and an adult male Yellow-rumped "Myrtle" Warbler.
