Blackburnian Warbler.


Heavy rains all day so I spent some time going through photos I took over the past week.
Here is a Blackburnian warbler at Rondeau Provincial Park.

Setophaga fusca
No other North American warbler has an orange throat.
Although the Blackburnian Warbler does not associate with other birds while it is nesting, it will join foraging flocks of chickadees, kinglets, and nuthatches after the young fledge. The warbler will follow the mixed flock with its begging young. The begging of the warbler chicks can even attract chickadees.
