Pine warbler        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Unlike the many warblers that summer in North America and winter far to the south, pine warblers winter in abundance in Florida.   They are often confiding and can be identified by the bright wingbars and yellowish (in males) underparts with faint side-streakings.   These birds were photographed in southern Florida, and a rare vagrant to Monterey, California.   True to its name, the latter bird spent almost all of its time in pine trees, or on the ground beneath them.
