Hello all!

Just back from another day birding and here is the first bird I present you with. I think this is a Magnolia Warbler, agree / disagree? This was taken in Baltimore County, Maryland on 8.23.12.

The first image shows a bit of a distinct wing bar and the only tiny bit of the top of the bird that I was able to image.

Thanks!

Benjamin

I was thinking Adult Male - Winter based on the pictures in Stokes though I can see it being either. At any rate its a new lifer so break out the bubbly!

I'd expect to see more dark black streaking on a winter male, but fall warblers can be tough to pin down sometimes.
