Lake Chamberlain - Bethany - 1 Golden-winged Warbler. This is was not the bird that I saw on the 5th. This bird was an adult male (The bird I saw on the 5th was likely a first fall female). This bird had bright yellow wing bars, a gray/white belly and throat, a yellow crown, and the full black face pattern. No signs of hybridization.
I have no idea what is going on at Lake Chamberlain!
The bird was seen mixed in with a group of warblers on the east side of the lake near the small boat ramp. It was in a foraging flock and not in classic habitat.
Remember Lake Chamberlain is Water Company Property and you need a pass to hike the trails (passes can be purchased on the internet)
