Comments: It’s hard to get a good photo of a small bird in the top of a tall tree, especially on a cloudy day when the light is dim, but at least the bird in this photo is identifiable as a Nashville warbler.

Nashville Warblers don’t breed anywhere near Nashville, Tennessee, although they do migrate through there. The species got its name because Nashville was where Alexander Wilson first saw it in 1811, and went on to name it.
