Bird #150 — Blackburnian Warbler

dendroica (from dendron, tree, and oikein, to dwell) fusca (dark)

Thursday, May 15, 1980 — 11:30 am

Des Plaines, Illinois — residential area

I noticed a few warblers flitting around the neighborhood, and I wandered around with my binoculars looking at them.  I spotted this male foraging in a Norway maple over the road.  I felt a bit conspicuous standing in the middle of a residential area with binoculars, but I didn’t let that stop me.
