Staked out rarity. Several marginally acceptable photos taken. Sitting in one place the entire time at the edge of the frigatebird colony. Wings hanging down, had tucked. Does not look healthy at all.

Black-throated Green Warbler

Apparently two different birds seen. I heard both. Flat call note suggestive of MYWA. The one I actually saw had a yellow face, black throat, white underparts with black streaks on flanks. The other bird was said to have less extensive black on the throat.
