Golden-winged Warbler

Golden-winged Warbler
The golden-winged warbler is a small wood warbler that nests in the north eastern half of the United States from Maine to Minnesota.They typically breed in bushy fields or marshes, building their nest low to the ground. They migrate to Central America and the northern portion of South America where they live in mixed flocks in the canopies of tropical forests over the winter. In Minnesota they usually only breed in the northern portions of the state. I photographed this bird while it was migrating north to its breeding territory in May.

You are so very good at capturing wild birds without even touching them! I can imagine what the song of this warbler must be like.

Wonderful looking bird - a little bit more distinctive than some warblers.

Thanks for linking to WBW - Stewart M - Australia
