Warbler 48×48

Oil on Canvas / The Chestnut-Sided Warbler has wonderful plumage – white face, greenish-yellow cap, black eye-stripe, greenish crown, dark-streaked grey upper feathers, two white wing bars, mostly white under plumage and chestnut flanks. It is a migratory songbird that breeds in eastern North America from southern Canada through the Appalachian mountain chain to Georgia. In the tropics, where they winter, the species occurs mostly in mature tropical rainforests

It measures 10.8 cm (4.3 inches), including its tail.

The female selects the nesting site, a loosely woven cup nest, which is usually situated in shrubby, deciduous under-stories close to the ground. The female produces 3 to 5 eggs that are creamy white or greenish with brown speckles in color, which are incubated by the female alone.
