From my trip to Ohio.

The prairie warbler (Setophaga discolor) is a small songbird of the New World warbler family.

Their breeding habitats are brushy areas and forest edges in eastern North America. The prairie warbler's nests are open cups, which are usually placed in a low area of a tree or shrub. Incubation period is 12 to 13 days.

These birds are permanent residents in the southern parts of their range. Other birds migrate to northeastern Mexico and islands in the Caribbean.

Prairie warblers forage actively on tree branches, and sometimes fly around with the purpose of catching insects, which are the main food source of these birds.

The numbers of these birds are declining due to habitat loss; this species also suffers from nest parasitism by the brown-headed cowbird.

Awesome shot Mario, text book quality.
Tac sharp focus revealing exceptional detail and fine feather texture. Great eye contact with just a tad bit of catchlight. Nice clean blurred BG. What a beauty!!
