Warbler Guy, where can I quickly learn more about confusing fall warblers that I am starting to see now as the warbler migration begins in North America? Are hybrid (intergrade) warblers common to see as part of the confusing fall warblers I sometimes see among migrating warblers?

Here’s a rapid relief answer, Jason (in Pittsburgh):
Please feel free to see pages 524- 525 in the new (and excellent) The Warbler Guide (Tom Stephenson & Scott Whittle. 2013. University of Princeton Press. $29.95; nathist.princeton.edu).
Beyond this basic overview associated with hybrid warblers, throughout this aforementioned book you can view comparative/contrast photos that will help
solve your confusing fall warbler puzzlements.
Does this help?
