Chestnut-sided Warbler at Meadow Park

While Chestnut-sided Warblers have been seen at other SLO County locations this migratory season, it was nice to see one at Meadow Park in San Luis Obispo, which continues with some cool warbler finds in recent days. This includes a Canada Warbler found by myself, a Tennessee found by the Hampl Bros, who are quite the gunslingers with fast-camera action, and today's juvenile Chestnut-sided Warbler, a first record for Meadow Park.

Have to say, finding and trying to keep an eye on the Chestnut-sided at both Pecho Road Willows and Islay Creek Campground were quite different experiences thank today's find. I was able to have clear looks this time around, even shot a video. Thanks, Mr. Chestnut-sided!
