Sunrise at 6:10 a.m.
Four daytime songs from a chestnut-sided warbler, all four of the same "accented-ending" (AE), pleased-pleased-pleased-to-MEETCHA variety.
Listen to all three examples of the chestnut-sided warbler's daytime, mate-attraction songs (this recording, VA-41,and VA-42), and compare them to the aggressive songs heard at dawn later in the season (VA-43).
Eastern towhee, wood thrush, field sparrow, indigo bunting
