Zellene,

Blackpoll warbler is more common than Black-and-white right now, though
Black-and-whites are still coming through for sure. Both are likely to be
seen on a morning in the field, but Blackpoll should be one of the most
common migrant warblers currently. Despite Blackpoll being more abundant,
this may not be reflected in some data sets. Blackpolls are more difficult
to identify in nonbreeding plumage (while Black-and-white look rather
unique) and their habits can make them more difficult to detect (more
likely to stick to the canopy/foliage and give poorer views than the
confiding/bark-clinging habits of the Black-and-white Warbler).
