Grace's Warbler

First record for Canada pending acceptance by the ORBC. The bird was flying off, reversing right over us and viewed by a few of us flying off the west side of the tip at exactly 07:00; found and photographed, unknown to us, by Willie D'anna, at 06:54 about 100m N of the tip.

Observers noted grey upper parts, yellow throat, white in rectrices, somewhat smaller than a Myrtle warbler. Tim Lucas photographed this obviously unusual warbler in flight. Photo shows limited yellow throat, partial yellow supercilium, wing bar and long tail with white in rectrices. Upon reviewing Tim's photos, after becoming aware of Willie D'Anna's observation of Grace's Warbler at the Tip (6 minutes prior to our observation), it became obvious that we had in fact observed the Grace's Warbler. Tim's photos show some of these details.
