**Very rare, unexpected. Drab female in the trees just above the dunes, most of the way out to the tip. Others went searching for it, but I don’t think it was refound. Was planning to add photos, but my memory card seems to have spazzed out and may have lost almost all of my photos from this trip, so I'll write a description for now. Small warbler with a small bill, long tail, yellow underparts, and olive upperparts. Distinct pale semicircle beneath the eye. Head slightly lighter than the rest of the upperparts. Thick black streaks on the sides and flanks, thicker than on a female CMWA. Very faint reddish streaks visible on the back (noted in the photos). Didn't observe the tail pattern in the field. Everyone who saw the photos off the back of my camera in the field (including Phil Odum, Chris DeWolfe, and Thomas Baumgart, among others) agreed that this bird was a PRAW. I'm devastated about the photos; there's a chance I'll be able to recover them, but no guarantee, unfortunately.
