BIRD OF THE WEEK

CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Setophaga pensylvanica
POPULATION: 18 million
TREND: Stable
HABITAT: Breeds in second-growth deciduous forests and shrubby clearings created by forest fires and other types of ecological disturbance. In winter, found in humid tropical forests and edges.

Chestnut-sided Warbler was not well known before the 1800s; prominent ornithologists such as Audubon and Wilson seldom saw the bird and knew little about it. Like the Golden-winged Warbler, this bird nests in semi-open, brushy areas, so could only be found where forest fires and other natural phenomena had created this habitat.

PAINTED BUNTING He wouldn't come out so I had to go in after him, I only use a single focal point but I'm still surprised the camera focused on the bird through all the bushes, sometimes you get lucky.//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js
