Palm Warbler minus red crown plus yellow tail

I've never seen a breeding Palm Warbler with its lovely rufous crown, but I was lucky to have a non-breeding fall Palm Warbler visit my Regina, Saskatchewan, backyard to flaunt its bright yellow tail coverts a few years ago. (We're not near a lake, and get only drop-in exotics. And yes, Palms — in fact, any Warblers are exotic to me...)

This Palm Warbler landed near the feeder in our lilac trees,
then soon flew away. I always wonder how many birds
I miss when I'm not sitting at my window in Spring and Fall... © SB
