Bells Bend Park, Davidson Co.23 June, 2012 I realize there are no summer records for this bird, and I wouldn't expect there to be. I of course thought I wasphotographing a female Common Yellowthroat, but the eye ring seemed WAY to strong compared to the femaleand first year yellowthroats I've seen. That being said, the bill shape doesn't scream Oreothylpis to me at all, and the habitat is of course all wrong forNashville even in migration. Anyone care to share some thoughts on a bird that threw me for a small loop this morning? I imagine COYE canbe extremely variable, and I'm still an advanced novice at best... always nice to get a photo of a questionable bird,however. Thanks,Ed SchneiderDavidson Co.
