Interesting. Twice this fall Team Pipit found late Nashville Warblers and
twice suspected an Orange-crowned was also present. In both cases, we did
not see the bird well enough to rule out Tennessee. Also, as you know, some
Orange-crowneds are devilishly similar to Nashvilles, showing broken rather
than complete eye circles. On one occasion I concluded that I had probably
seen two Nashvilles.
