Elk Grove Village, Illinois — Busse Woods

I found this beautiful Blue-winged Warbler foraging rapidly through the small trees in the under story of tall mature woods, staying approximately ten feet off the ground. It isn’t uncommon in Northern Illinois, and even breeds here, but I had never seen one.
