A very rare visitor to Curacao and so fast you almost don’t see him; the Blackburnian warbler is a small ( 13 centimeter long) bird looking a lot like the Blackpoll warbler in winter plumage but slightly different in coloring. Blackburnian warblers have a yellow stripe on the head and the coloring of their feet is slightly different from the Blackpoll warblers.
We are so focused on picturing everything we see, we did not realize until checking out the pictures at homes that this one was no Blackpoll. Surprise!!!! Just one known record for our island 🙂
