Blackpoll Warblers are amongst the last of the Warblers to migrate through our area mostly on their way to breeding grounds in boreal habitat in Canada.  A few, such as this male, stay to breed in suitable habitat in the highest elevations in the northeast US.

Excellent image captured in the open. I had some images this year of this species but the beak was always covered by a twig.

Sweet image with nice pose and bright eye - lovely distinctive markings with the black cap and white cheeks bordered by the darker necklace. Nicely done, Warren.

Karl, You must have been shooting in the Adirondacks where virtually every bird has a stick in front of it, lol !!

Wow what a lovely image. I love the look-back pose and sitting atop the pine bough.
