Eau Claire, WI just a few moments ago. Thinking Nashville, but just double checking.

The white vent and thin, small bill, as well as the thin and dainty shape of the bird. Connecticut's are rarely seen, and even more rarely seen out in the open, and even more rarely seen in trees.


In my defense, spellcheck though that my typing was correct, and who am I to argue..

The tree thing is not good to base a Connecticut warbler on because I have seen one in a small tree before. Although that was in the middle of a deep forest :P Heres a bad photo I got of it:

This is why I qualify most all of my assertions with words like "not usually", "rarely" or "often"

Darknight, thanks so much for the explanation.  I didn't realize Connecticut was more of a ground bird.  In the above picture I wasn't quite sure if the vent was white or if it was an artifact from the leaves.  Appreciate the help.
