The Townsend's Warbler found by Ken Klapper in Walpole, NH, is still present. It appears to be a first winter female. She should be near the Pacific Coast of NA, or in Mexico/CA, not in the Connecticut River Valley. During the chilly and windy morning, appearance was erratic, but those who have watched the bird the last few days expect her activity to pick up as the temperature warms and insects fly. The presence of a rarity like this is good for local birders, but probably not so good for the bird who, if it manages to survive the New England winter or go south with the Fox Sparrows, still faces long odds for ever getting where a mate might be. Patience finally yielded a few passable photos.
