Crescent-chested Warbler

Oreothlypis superciliosa

Common in mountain pine forests in Mexico, sometimes moving to lower elevations in winter, this small warbler has strayed into our area several times. Most sightings are for southeastern Arizona, where one bird returned for two consecutive winters along Sonoita Creek. There is also one possible sighting for southern Texas.
