There were 3 target warbler species for the trip. The first was the absolutely stunning 5" Golden-browed Warbler (Basileuterus belli). It is hands down the most beautiful warbler I have seen so far.

We also saw several other warblers. The 4.5" Crescent-chested Warbler (Oreothylpis superciliosa) is olive with a white eye stripe, yellow breast and rufous spot in yellow.
The last was the 5" Grace's Warbler (Setophaga graciae). This bird is a target bird for southeast Arizona, but its range extends south to Nicaragua
And another photo of the same bird.
The 5" Brown-capped Vireo (Vireo leucophyrs) has a light brown back and dark brown cap. His range is Mexico to Bolivia.
I have photos of 73 of the 120 New World warblers.
And I have photos of 23 of the 63 worldwide vireos.
Happy birding and photography,
