Eleanor Sachs and I found a brilliant male YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER at Pr.
Edw. Pt. around 1:00 p.m. today, Apr. 21.
It was moving slowly through the red cedar and bare deciduous trees behind
the Bird Banding Station about 50 m. along the banders' path from the small
new banding shed.
The bird was singing, a modest 3 or 4 second desccending series of notes. We
had the sun to our backs and were within 8 m. of the bird at the closest. We
were able to check its bright yellow throat, strong white supercillium (over
the eye), black face mask and large white patch behind the ear, white belly
and black streaked lower flanks.

We do not know if the bird had been banded and released before we found it.
