A Blue Winged Warbler

This flashy Blue Winged Warbler shows off its primary flight feathers and coverts after being caught at the songbird mist-netting station on Stratton Island. Foraging mostly in upper half of trees and shrubs while hanging upside down, this golden bird can be found probing dead leaf clusters in winter. Photo Courtesy of Stella Walsh
