Update on Blackpoll Warbler record from October 4, 2013

April 09, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

My record of the female Blackpoll Warbler made the Top Ten Species list for 2013 of the Bird Records Committee for the Audubon Society of Missouri.  I was able to get just this one photo!  I'm glad this image adds to other sightings.  

As noted in The Bluebird:

 

7) BLACKPOLL WARBLER (Setophaga striata): One bird, 4 October 2013, Terpstra residence, Kirkwood, St. Louis Co. Documented with photographs by Margy Terpstra. Common in spring but accidental in fall, when the migration path of the species swings sharply eastward. This is only the third documented fall record for Missouri, and the second with photographs.
