I visited Cold Creek Conservation Area, in King Township, today. So did about 100 school kids keenly involved in natural science studies. I tried to to steer clear of them but they were in the good spots so I had to settle for what nature felt I deserved. One uncommon bird sighting was the male Tennessee Warbler above. A bit nondescript but identifiable by the white eyebrow strip, black eyeline, gray head and contrasting greenish back. I also spotted a Chestnut-sided Warbler. Its photo is below and I apologize for the poor quality shot, but its characteristic markings, yellow cap, partial black mask and chestnut sides, are still readily identifiable even in a poor photo.
