Claiming a territory

Yellow warblers are a common sight this time of year at Rondeau.
This one was either claiming a territory or calling for a mate.

Setophaga petechia

Life can be dangerous for a small bird. Yellow Warblers have occasionally been found caught in the strands of an orb weaver spider’s web.
