This male's portrait was obtained near Kirkfall, Ontario along a large hydro line just before a torrential downpour. It was indeed a memorable outing. You can hear the crickets and finally the rain and thunder in the last clip before the skies opened. This warbler had more sense than I did. As soon as he took off for cover and disappeared the skies opened and I was totally soaked.
The Prairie Warbler is common in eastern United States; casual to southern Ontario. It can be found in open deciduous saplings, wood margins, overgrown fields, along hydro lines and mangrove swamps. Usually in lower branches and brush.
Olive upperparts. Chestnut streaks on back may be visible. Bright yellow eyebrow stripe. Yellow patch below eye. Bright yellow underparts. Black streaked sides. Two pale wing bars. It has a tail-wagging habit when it's not singing.
Its song is a thin "zee zee zee zee ze".
