A Western Gem


This week’s photo, taken July 18, 2016 at Richmond Beach Park in Shoreline, WA, features a male BLACK-THROATED GRAY WARBLER.

Alright, I admit that most of the wonderful warblers of North America frequent the eastern half of the continent, and we birders out here in the west often feel warbler-deprived. Fortunately, we do have a few gems of our own that rarely show up in the east, and the BLACK-THROATED GRAY WARBLER qualifies as one of them.

    Not as common in California as up in Washington. I would be thrilled to see one.

    Thanks for showing a mid-westerner a bird I’ll most likely never see in the feather. Gorgeous bird! Connie
