Magnolia warbler        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Breeding male magnolia warblers are striking birds, and the species is quite attractive in the more subdued juvenile and winter plumages.   This is an eastern North American breeder that is quite rare on the west coast.   These were in Monterey and Pacific Grove, California; they were constantly moving and hard to photograph.
