American Kestrel, Chestnut-sided Warbler

Once American Kestrels show up in the Spring, they are very easy to find in Carleton and York County. Just go for a drive and you will usually find a couple along most of the back roads perched on power lines.

I found a family of three Chestnut-sided Warblers last week in Woodstock. None of three came out in the open very long, but as you can see in the picture below, the chestnut really shows up on the sides of the male.
