Black-and-White Warbler

Streaked all over black-and-white, this rare visitor to Washington is somewhat reminiscent of our resident Black-throated Gray Warbler but with the addition of a white central crown stripe and a white-streaked back, and without the Black-throated Gray’s yellow spot in front of the eye. It is also more elongated and flat-headed in appearance and has a telltale habit of hitching along bark and branches, rather like a nuthatch.
