Chestnut sided warbler

It has been a cold slow spring at Rondeau.
The warblers are slow coming in and the leaves are out making it a challenge to see these beautiful wood warblers.

This chestnut sided warbler was on Spicebush Trail on the weekend.

His call is "pleased, pleased to meet cha"
A good way to remember the bird and its call is to think of an inn keeper, wearing a chestnut coloured vest and a yellow cap, greeting each person with a Pleased to meet you.

Get out and enjoy nature.
