Re: [NBB] Interesting warbler at Fish Docks, PRNS

Keith Hansen asked me to forward this link to his video of the mystery warbler on outer Point Reyes last week:
There has been lots of lively opinion and you can add to it at Keith's blog site:
It'd be a lot easier to pass it off as an anomalous Townsend's Warbler or Townsend's x Black-throated Gray warbler hybrid if it were not for the virtually unmarked (mostly) green crown and back, coupled with the bold black underpart pattern. Can a bird be hypomelanitstic in one area but hypermelanistic in another? Some have suggested that it may not be an adult male but looking at Ron Mallory's photo and Keith's video, the wing-feather qualities seem more consistent with an adult than a first-fall bird to me.
