Another Temple Grove rarity: Chestnut-sided Warbler

This is the third warbler that is rare to Colorado that I found on Saturday at Temple Grove on the Ft Lyon Canal north of Lamar, CO. Though I refound him again Sunday these were the best pics I could get as he stayed most of the time about 40 feet away on the other side of this wide canal. This little guy foraged mostly in the deciduous trees.
I birded Temple Grove again today but there was no sign of this little guy so he too must have moved on to his breeding grounds. SeEtta
