At 1100 today Rick Welle found a Palm Warbler at Swallows Park.It was with a flock of approx. 12-15 Yellow-rumped Warblers in a mix of willows and assorted trees and brush near waters edge between the boat launch and the bathing beach.It can be identified and separated from the YR Warblers by it's almost constant tail flipping, lack of eye ring , dark eyeline and the pale streak above the eye.
I went to Swallows Park as soon as I heard from Rick and spent from 1200 to 1315 quickly finding the flock of YRWA.I was unable to get any photos, but did get several looks thru binos at the Palm Warbler.The flock responded to YRWA calls.Also in the area were Song Sparrows, Downy Woodpecker, BC Chickadee and Ruby Kinglets.
This is an Asotin County 1st.There was a Palm Warbler at Mann Lake, Nez Perce County, Idaho last Winter for several weeks.
