I banded a black-throated blue warbler (1st year male) this morning (oct. 10) at the Missouri Western Banding Station.  This is first black-throated blue warbler that I have banded in Northwest Missouri in nearly 40 years of banding. It is only the 2nd time that I have observed this species in Missouri.
