• Orange-crowned Warbler

    Here's another beauty that popped up for me at Dumont Campground near Steamboat Springs. This is a bird I have found difficult to identify, difficult to separate from other beautiful yellow birds. During my struggle to come up with the proper ID, I learned that the Orange-crowned Warbler has no wing bars, has an unmarked tail, and tends toward gray on the top side and the head. The bright yellow coverts sort of threw me off, but they are all part of this guy's costume.
