Description of the Bird

Matthew and Amy Rice (Ohio) and I watched this bird forage in a ponderosa pine. It initially struck us as relatively large for a warbler and slow moving.

Resources Used

Sibley and Nat Geo guides.  Also showed photo to Scott Rashid and to Jeff Gordon of the ABA.

Previous Experience

A later review of eBird records suggest this is roughly the 5th August record for Colorado and the earliest by several weeks.
