Chestnut-sided Warbler

Once again home, on 12 May 2017, I banded this male Chestnut-sided Warbler. As I have written several times in this blog, this warbler went almost unreported by early ornithologists. Now it is one of the most common warblers, breeding in disturbed secondary growth left over by human development. The species breeds across eastern Canada and the northeastern United States. This warbler also nests south to Georgia in the Appalachians. Isolated populations are found in southern Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas, and eastern Iowa. In Minnesota, most breed in northern counties.
