I found a nest of a Yellow Warbler while walking along the woodland trail at Point Pelee National Park. The nest was not completed and this guy was busy building. I stayed to watch for about an hour and got some great shots.
The Yellow Warbler breeds in the whole of temperate North America as
far south as central Mexico in open, often wet, woods or shrub. It is
migratory, wintering in Central and South America. They are very rare
vagrants to western Europe.
Depending on subspecies, it may be between 4 and 7 inches long, with an average wingspan of about 7.8 inches.
