Pine Warblers in December

On Sunday, December 3, I located a pine warbler in the state trees grove of the National Arboretum. (My post on the sighting is here.) This past Sunday, another birder relocated the bird in the same location.

Pine warblers are exceptional here in December. Over the past thirty years, only ten pine warblers have been recorded on the Washington CBC. The high count was three on last year's count.

Will it stick around for this Saturday's count?
