This is was one of the target species from our trip to Manitoba. Very difficult conditions there. Mosquitoes by millions, and many, many tics everywhere.

The Connecticut Warbler (Oporornis agilis) is a small songbird of the New World warbler family.

These medium-sized warblers measure 13–15 cm (5.1–5.9 in) in length, with a 22–23 cm (8.7–9.1 in) wingspan.

Their breeding habitat is bogs or open deciduous woods near water, especially with poplar or aspen, in central Canada and states bordering the Great Lakes.

These birds migrate to the Amazon River area in South America in winter. Connecticut warblers undertake different migratory routes in spring and in fall, an atypical behavior. In spring, they normally pass through the Midwest and only rarely vagrating to the East Coast, but in fall, larger numbers of migrating birds move through the East Coast.

They forage on the ground, picking among dead leaves, or hop along branches. These birds mainly eat insects and similar small invertebrates but will supplement their diet occasionally with seeds and berries. They are "skulking" birds that usually spend their time foraging within dense, low vegetation. Such behavior often renders them difficult to see well.

Awesome image Mario!!!
I have been wanting to get a shot of one of these beauties for a long time, but so far no luck. A few are always spotted up at Magee Marsh each year, but I have never had the good fortune to be in the right spot at the right time. Maybe next year!!

Hello there, beyond that it is lovely and useful notes i wonder what Connecticut means :)
