Black-throated Blue Warbler (female)

Setophaga caerulescens


Female Black-throated Blue Warblers are a plain bird with a white line over the eye and mature females have a white spot on the edge of the wing like the one in the second picture. The first picture is a first year female, lacking the white spot.


Heald Orchard conservation area continues to produce lots of warblers migrating north, feeding on the many caterpillars on the apple trees.

No caterpillar photos. I saw a few up close and they were just little nondescript light green cats that were probable very early instars.
