On our recent trip to the left coast, I had a few target species in mind. One of them was the Townsend’s Warbler. They are very plentiful this year in the Monterey area. It was a fun time shooting these little wood warblers. The taxonomic name for this bird is Dendroica townsendi. Debdrioca derived from the Greek for tree (dendron) dweller (oicos for inhabit). While that is where you normally find them, in the trees, they will forage around on the ground for tasty bits which makes it a whole lot easer to get the image.
