Kentucky Warbler (Geothlypis formosa), Beal Conservation Area, Havasu NWR, Mohave County
This Kentucky Warbler was
found and photographed by Chris Dodge on 06 June 2018
It was captured during the operation of
a MAPS banding station.
A rare migrant
in Arizona, more often seen in the spring, this appears
to be the first for Mohave County.
This bird was a diagnostic ASY Male
in hand. Distinctive with entirely bright yellow
underparts, black below around the eye running down
along the edge of the malar (with black on the face and
crown more extensive and solidly black on adult males)
and a conspicuous yellow supercillium which wraps around
