One of our trail video cameras just captured an really awesome bird, a Chestnut-sided Warbler! Clearly VERY lost, this probable first-year female (thanks Kimball @nhmla) stopped in the garden to take a bath during its wayward migration. How birds like this end-up in California is not completely understood, but obviously its GPS needs to be recalibrated!
The Chestnut-sided Warbler range map below shows just how lost this bird really is. It is one of only three that have been found in California this year.
