I spotted this little bird in my Bottle Brush bush with a Northern Parula Warbler.
These are not very good pictures. I had to take them from a video, but it would not sit still long enough for snapshots.
My field guide said the Cape May Warbler was the only warbler with “chestnut cheeks”. Sure looks like this one has them.
I’ve put in several photos from different angles so someone who knows their warblers can make a call on this.
It has the black cap, chestnut cheeks and breast stripes.
Florida did not look like part of it’s habitat. That is the reason I am questioning it.
Here’s part of the video…also not very good.
