Birds of Dominica: Plumbeous Warbler

This delightful and common 'endemic' (also found on Gaudeloupe) is the monochrome equivalent of the Barbudan Warbler (one of the Dendroicas split from Adelaide's Warbler). This bird was photographed on a boat trip though the mangroves near Portsmouth, along a channel blocked by the hulk of a ship wrecked in Hurricane David in 1979. Nearby is where they filmed some parts of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
