Townsend’s Warbler

In Carmel, we came across a warbler party with a dozen Townsend’s Warblers. These Townsend’s were in the Monterey Cypress trees in Carmel by the Sea. This warbler is strictly a west coast bird that winters in the coastal areas of Washington, Oregon and California. It also winters in Mexico.

They're so beautiful. We have the yellow-rumped warblers here (first time I've seen them was this year). Guess we won't be getting your beauties in Texas...

Nice shots! He looks a bit wet and ruffled. My records from the past year show the Townsend's arrives around mid-October and leaves mid-February from the Monterey Bay area.
