Actually, a male Black-Throated Blue was present all winter of 1994-95 at a residence on Mercer Island. So this bird can be quite sedentary on its winter grounds. This residence was also feeding an Anna's Hummingbird, which was my first for the state. Many people made that pilgrimage to a home as hospitable as the house in Bothell. A beautiful bird brings out the best in people.

Hello Darwin,The Washington Bird Records Committee keeps a list of "accepted" reports on their section of the WOS site:

According to their list this will be the 12th record for the state, pending acceptance (which seems almost certain). My general impression is that rare warblers don't typically stick around very often, so a chasable rarity such as this one is/was a big treat.
