  • The warbler butt is *not* a Bay-breasted Warbler, but great guess!!! Very close…David is right in saying Chestnut-sided!!! I just could not get a decent photo of one, even though they were fairly common…they were not hanging out high in the tree tops, but also not at eye level…more mid-canopy. Have fun when you finally get there!!! Wish I could have stayed longer!
