The Wilson's Warbler, (Wilsonia pusilla), is a New World warbler. It breeds in northern North America across Canada and south through the western United States.

It is migratory, wintering in Central America. This is a very rare vagrant to western Europe.

The Wilson's Warbler is 12 cm long. It has a plain green-brown back and yellow underparts. The male has a small black cap. Males of the western race W. p. chryseola are greener above and brighter than the eastern race.

The breeding habitat is fairly open woodlands with undergrowth or shrubs. Wilson's Warblers nest on the ground, laying 4-6 eggs in a cup nest.

These birds feed on insects, often caught by flycatching.

The song is a series of descending notes. The call is a loud chif.

This bird was first described in 1811 by the American ornithologist Alexander Wilson, who gave his own name to the species.

Excellent close up shot Wilson Warbler
Nicely composed with the level POV and great pose.

Good Morning Cousin,

I love this little Warbler with the long skinny legs. A wonderful pose on the branch. Lovely colors and sharp details of his face, wings and plummage. I'm trying to remember if it was cloudy here on the 13th.


wow that is one colorful bird, nice find. Looks like to me that the focus is a little soft on the bird, but sharp on the plant

Hello Luis
This is just stunning!...The sharpness and details are perfect and highlighted so well by the fantastic light background..It is exemplary work..and with a convertor!
All the Best

Hi Luis, Exquisit is the word that comes to mind when looking at this small yellow bird. They surely are a wonder of nature. Well taken with 200mm lens and the DOF is excellent. TFS, Murray.

Hi Luis.
What an unusual shot and its colouration. Magnification is really great. Despite the contrast scene exposure and all colours are reproduced perfectly. Details of a very cute bird and leaves are superb as well as diagonal composition. Well done and TFS.
