Chestnut-sided Warbler video

Below is a high-definition video that I shot of a Chestnut-sided Warbler. I found this bird on Saturday, May 1, at our Birdcraft Sanctuary in Fairfield. As I have mentioned previously, Birdcraft's small size and attractiveness to migrant birds often lends very close views of species you may not often get good looks at. This cooperative male allowed me to sneak in close and watch as he bathed and preened in the pond and surrounding vegetation. Experiences like this are a common occurrence in the sanctuary.
