Orange-crowned warbler        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Orange-crowned warblers are widely distributed and occur in a range of color morphs (most rather subdued; the bird in the top right image is about the brightest of this species I've seen).   Some have faint streaking on the underside or a suggestion of a eye line, but many are quite plain.   These were photographed while breeding near Churchill, Manitoba or in Alaska; others were wintering in south Texas or various locations in California.
