Bay-breasted Warbler

Bay-breasted Warbler7326The adult Bay-breasted Warbler is black and white and red and beige all over; truly a sight to behold! Or so I’m told. I’ve never seen one. I have seen juveniles however, but they aren’t nearly as flashy as their grownup selves. Juveniles can be identified by their peach colored armpits. Wingpits? Peach pits? Hmmm… you get the idea. They do look very similar to several other warbler species so keep an eye out for the peachy parts as well as some slight striping up front.Bay-breasted Warbler5903
