Chestnut-sided Warbler

As the lackluster 2010 spring migration plods along, yesterday I banded this female Chestnut-sided Warbler.  A friend visiting Ely, Minnesota, reports plenty of warblers in the North Woods.  Perhaps this year's warblers overflew central Minnesota.  I saw no warbler waves and only a smattering of species this May, and I have read similar reports from elsewhere in the region. One of the joys of birding is being in the right place at the right time; I guess a frustration is being at the wrong place at the wrong time...
