Bird Pic Of The Week

Chestnut-sided Warbler

(Setophaga pensylvanica)

Where: Page County, VA • Big Meadows in the Shenandoah National Park

Notes: One of my favorite things about visiting new places is the excitement of exploration. New destinations bring a heightened sense of my surroundings and a peaked watchfulness for encounters with wildlife I've rarely encountered before. The lush green understory, scattered with groves of ferns in the high elevation deciduous forests of the Shenandoah, is so green it seems to stretch the limits that a human eye can perceive. Amidst the understory of the newly emerging canopy, this "Chestnut-sided" was foraging for caterpillar that feed on the tender young leaves of many of the deciduous trees. It was singing its "pleased, pleased, pleased to meecha" sounding call almost constantly, pausing only to grab a snack here and there. This Neotropical migrant is the only warbler with a greenish-yellow cap, a white breast, and rusty streaks down the sides. I especially like the hint of a small spider web along the right side of this image.
