Chestnut-sided Warbler

Setophaga pensylvanica


Adult males have a bright yellow crown and a chestnut stripe down the sides, hence their name. This is an immature bird.


I photographed it in a mixed forest of hardwood and softwoods, at the edge of a shoreline alder thicket.

Thanks Ashley. I spent a bunch of time trying to find an ID in my guides and just kept coming up with nothing. Yet in the back of my mind I knew what this was. Thanks again...

Dendroica is the old Genus. My suggestion has the correct Genus.
