  25. Setophaga sp.

    Number observed: 1

    Comments: Unidentified warbler, likely of this genus, briefly seen (maybe 1-3 seconds). Observed at close range (< 10m) but bird was in a dense arbor vitae shrub and not seen clearly. I could make out that it was a wood warbler and that it looked most like a male Townsend's warbler or male Black-throated green warbler. Either would be a rare bird especially at this date. I could see streaking on breast/throat and sides and an overall yellow wash to head/throat, with black/darker pattern on face and a darker wing and back. Bummer that I didn't get a 2nd look.
