Orange-Crowned Warbler

Orange-Crowned Warbler, Vermivora celata, lunching on a Palo Verde tree.  The Palo Verde were blooming in clouds of crepe-paper-like, bright yellow flowers accented by their very ephemeral leaves. There are a few warblers that look pretty close to this one; however, the lighter stripe over the eye is a characteristic of the orange-crowned warbler.
