Warbler ID - Central NJ (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Taken at Manasquan Reservoir today. It looks like a Wilson's Warbler to me as the black cap seems to show just barely from this angle, the beak size and wings look right, and there was one reported there earlier today but I'd like to get some opinions on if it could be a yellow warbler.

Looks like a Wilson's Warbler, great find in the East Coast.

Black cap with the a bright yellow brow between cap and eye.

With the short bill, black on the cap, and flight feathers lacking (strong) edgings, it's a Wilson's Warbler.

Thanks very much everyone! The strong yellow supercilium was most helpful for me in referencing this species as compared with yellow warbler. We get them in NJ a fair amount but this is a first for me!
