Flaming orange is one of the color descriptions that the Sibley Field Guide To Birds uses when describing this 5 inch warbler. This male in breeding colors was photographed this morning ( May 26) in the Gatineau Hills in Quebec Canada. This bird is a migrant as are all warblers and it winters in southern Central America and South America. They tend to stay high in the trees and like mature coniferous trees.
