Photograph by David Mejía. Although there is at least one unconfrmed sight record of Townsend's Warbler from Belize, this individual was the frst to be photographed, thus confrming its presence as a vagrant in Belize. It was found feeding on the lawn along the edge of the parking lot at St. Herman's Blue Hole National Park 24 October 2014. Photograph by Elmer Medrano.
