Bird Pic Of The Week

Chestnut-sided Warbler

(Dendroica pensylvanica)

Where: Richmond, VA • Glidewell Rd

Notes: Spring migration has brought a bounty of warblers to my little backyard birdbath this spring. I am truly blessed. Just when I thought that most of these avian travelers had passed by, I was treated to this four inch long gem of a warbler. When I first saw the green cap of two little birds splashing in the water, I jumped from my chair, hoping to get a good photo or two. But, the pair of Chestnut-sided's had apparently been bathing for a while before I noticed them. They were very soaked (left). Soon one flew off and then after a few minutes, the other departed as well. My hopes were "dampened". Then, a few minutes later, another Chestnut-sided Warbler appeared! Fortunately, I still had my camera set-up with the remote shutter trigger and I was able to capture a few images of this striking creature. The peak of spring migration has passed, but a few birds are still lingering behind and I find myself looking forward to next spring already.

THE BIRD SPA

The Simple Birdbath Alternative • DIY Installation Instructions and Parts List

Birds, like all other animals, prefer habitats that meet all their basic survival needs: food, shelter and WATER! They depend on water to condition their feathers for flight, to help maintain their body temperature, for hydration, and for hygiene. A landscape with a consistent, clean running water source will attract both a greater number of species and a higher count of birds. This especially applies to the many migratory and insect-eating species too. The Bird Spa is a low maintenance water feature, designed specifically for birds. Has ATTRACTED 80 DIFFERENT SPECIES at a single location in central Virginia!
