A Juvenile Male Black-and-White Warbler

Uploaded by: icmoore

Thursday September 24, 2009

Caption: in my backyard for the first time in months :) I first thought this was a female because the male has a black chin but the female is duller and has no check patch. When he gets older his cheek patch will turn all black and his chin will too.

Thank you Gale, Linda, and booboo!!

These are always the first ones to migrate back here. They are also known as the Black and White Creeper and you will see them going head first down the trees in search for insects sometimes. At first I thought this was a female because the chin is white but after looking at my pictures from last year and reading some more I realized this is a juvenile male. His color is brighter than a female and his cheek patch which she doesn't have will turn black as well as his chin.

Thanks again!

About icmoore


My name is Cathy and I first joined WU in 2005 for the great weather info and Dr. Master's blog and then later discovered the wonderful photography community here. I so enjoy seeing everyone's pictures and sharing some of mine. My husband of 42 years and I sold the house we had lived in for 25 years and raised our 2 sons in then downsized to a cottage on a barrier island on the west coast of FL. It's about a block away from the Gulf and we are living our dream now and praying that the big wind don't blow :)
