This Chestnut-sided Warble was hopping around inside a large bush for a long time. It was deep in there so it was difficult to get many shots of it. Suddenly it jumped out right in front of me on a low branch. I was able to get several good shots of it before it flew back. After it left I called after it, “Thank you!” for giving us such good looks.
