Blackburnian Warbler (Setophaga fusca) - 06May2016

I have a theory.  Any warbler with the word Black in the name is a good warbler.  Black-and-white, Black-throated Blue, Black-throated Green, Black-throated Gray, Blackpoll and last but not least Blackburnian.  Hmm, now that I think of it almost all warblers are cool.

I especially love Blackburnians because in North Carolina they breed at pretty high elevation and I usually find mine in beautiful spots like the Bald Knob Ridge Trail near Mt Mitchell which is also the highest mountain East of the Mississippi.  That's where I found this bad boy.
