Townsend's warbler        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Townsend's warbler is a colorful breeder in the Pacific Northwest, and a fairly common winter resident in coastal California.   This particular male was photographed near Monterey, California.   For some reason it was extraordinarily confiding, letting me approach much closer than a meter as it fed from suet and hummingbird feeders.   Other photos of this species are on this page.
