Coopers Hawk, American Pipit and Unknown Warbler




Another great day at Cumbies last Sunday.  A few more pictures to share.  The third one is potentially an Audubon Warber which is the Western version of the Yellow-rumped warbler a rare sitting for Massachusetts.  It is being confirmed by Wayne Peterson at Mass Audubon.  Will update when I know more.

Cooper's Hawk

 American Pipit

Here's the photographs of the unknown Warbler.  There are many different markings that have completely thrown me off course.  Clearly marked wing bars, yellow throat and belly, but white undertail.  Darker crown and white eye ring.  This time of year birds can have many odd coloration.  I'll report back once I get confirmation from Mass Audobon.

I'll have to go there one day. I would definitively get some lifer birds under my belt.

What a beautiful morning it was! Perfect for birding at Cumberland Farm. Instead I went for a much-needed run and then to mass.

I've got my SSBC schedule up on my fridge! I'll catch the next one :)

Good luck with your mystery warbler. Let us know what you find out.
