Yellow-throated Warbler – Kishwaukee River

I could have titled this “Never Go Birding Without Your Camera”. Today during my lunch break I found Yellow-throated Warblers (not sure how many) on the eastern side of Kishwaukee River Forest Preserve. Approximate location – if you follow the road from the entrance and turn left, the birds were in some trees along the river before the pine-tree lined turnaround.

One of the Yellow-throated Warblers reacted to my pishing, caught a large spider and proceeded to carry it to where I could not see. He posed less than 20 feet from my camera-less self. It can be assumed that they nested there as it sounded like young being fed as well as the fact that the adult was carrying the food.

I will try to return tomorrow for pictures.
