One adult male (1988-71; formerly 89-71) on 6 Aug. 1988, Tensas/Madison: Tensas River N. W. R. All members were in agreement that despite the relatively good description of the bird, the duration of observation and the viewing conditions during the observation were inadequate to support the identification of such a rare, even possibly extinct species. Hybrid warblers are known, and without a careful study, it may not be possible to eliminate a hybrid. All members believed that diagnostic photographs or tape recordings would now be necessary to prove this species' presence in the state.
One adult male (91-03) on 23 Feb. 1991, St. Charles: south levee of the Bonnet Carre Spillway. The description lacked sufficient details and supporting photographs that would be necessary to accept a modern-day report of such a rare and possibly extinct species.
