Bluethroat

Cyanecula svecica

A very rare spring vagrant, this species is most often found during fall when it is less-than-annual but not unexpected. During the spring this species is most likely to be found in late May, while the best period to look in the fall is from August 20th-September 5th. Records into late September are similar to other similar species, such as the Siberian Rubythroat (Luscinia calliope).
