The Ashy-throated Warbler was one of the first birds that I saw in Chengdu. I absolutely love this picture because not only is it a great shot of this warbler, he’s in a tree with little white flowers that you can see in the background. Audubon is famous for being one of the first people to make drawings of birds in their natural habitat. So I like to show birds in bushes and trees instead of less identifiable places.
They’re very common birds in China and Thailand, and travel all the way to India but are no less lovely because of their commonality.
Even though the throat is a very obvious clue for identifying the warbler, he also has a prominent wing bar.
