Orange-crowned Warbler

Leiothlypis celata

L. c. lutescens - Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada - September 2011

Only occasionally does an Orange-crowned Warbler over-winter in Maryland. According to the rangers, this individual had been present at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge for about 6 weeks before I independently discovered it in some roadside bushes.
