Chestnut-Sided Warbler

Setophaga pensylvanica

The Chestnut-Sided Warbler is a striking bird. They winter from just north of the Yucatan peninsula and south through Panama. In spring they migrate north and spend the breeding season from the Great Lakes north to southern Canada and east to New Brunswick and Pennsylvania. Some birds settle along the Appalachian Mountains as far south as western Tennessee.

These birds are not known to stay in old growth woodlands. Instead, they prefer young regrowing woods, both when breeding and on their winter grounds.
