Note the hint of a breast band on the buffy throat and breast, and the buff-colored wing markings and eyebrow. Expert birder, Peter Pyle confirmed that this bird is a first-year male. He also mentioned that the lack of a breastband is “a pigment anomaly” that he has seen a few times before in photos and specimens. This bird represents the 1st record for Lehigh County.
