Bird ID

Hi I would like you assistance in identifying this bird. It was photographed on June 27, on the West Coast of Barbados after a week of strong easterly winds. This is the only photograph that was sent by a none birder who just noticed a strange bird. Thanks in advance

Looks like either Hermit or Black throated green warbler? If you are able to crop the original its possible there may be some more detail visible.

I think it is Hermit Jim, but my experience with new world warblers is a bit limited.

I agree that it does look like Hermit Warbler. But, eBird has no records of Hermit Warbler for the entire West Indies.

What do they have for Black-throated Green Warbler?

Black-throated Green Warbler has numerous records from Dominica north and west into Cuba and the Bahamas. There is a single record from Barbados, from April 30, 1993. There is only one June-July record for the West Indies, from Saint Barthélemy on June 2, 2019.

The timing is interesting, perhaps a 2cy bird not quite making the full journey or alternatively moving (out of sync) across the Caribbean rather than up through Central America? Quite surprising that there are relatively few extralimital records for some NA passerines from the West Indies, the whole archipelago looks like one continuous vagrant trap!

My initial impression was Hermit, but looking closely I think I can see stronger black striping on the flanks, which pushes me to say Black-throated Green.
