Townsend's Warbler (Setophaga townsendi)

Townsend's Warbler
Townsend's Warbler (Setophaga townsendi) - here an adult male - is a common wintering warbler in the highlands of Guatemala. Sometimes it can be the most common bird you see on a birding day in high-elevation forests near Antigua Guatemala during the northern winter. Especially for birders from the US east coast, it is exciting to see Townsend's Warblers, which breed in the western US, in mixed species flocks together with warblers breeding in the eastern US and resident warblers from the north Central American highlands.
