Chestnut-Sided Warbler
Dendroica pensylvanica
May 22, 2011

The chestnut-sided warbler is one of the easier warblers to identify. Via its name, the warbler has chestnut-color sides. And a yellow crown.

Actually, chestnut-streaked warblers would be more exact, but chestnut-sided warbler is easier to pronounce.

  The tiny warblers are insectivores (they eat bugs).

  And although the view is somewhat obscured, the chestnut-sided warbler's song is loud and clear.

  This was the first time I've photograhed a chestnut-sided warbler, and I subsequently came across him on a number of other days. But I like the first set of photos the best.

Photo note: I used a Pentax K20D, with the Sigma 150-500mm lens, for the photos, taken on 5 May 2011.
