Golden-winged Warbler

Posted on Mar 14, 2016

RTPI President Twan Leenders and RTPI Affiliate Sean Graesser, among other friends and colleagues, are back from a very productive and thrilling trip to Costa Rica. They saw or netted a tremendous variety of species, and Sean thinks the most amazing was catch was a neotropical migrant bird – this Golden-winged Warbler. He waited a long time to see a Golden-winged Warbler, his favorite warbler in North America, ironically finally netting one in Costa Rica. Spectacular bird!
