April 19, 2016 – Kentucky Warbler (Geothlypis formosa)

These warblers breed in the southern and eastern United States and winter in the Caribbean, Central America, and northern South America. They forage for insects in leaf litter on the ground, and also eat some berries. During the breeding season, males sing frequently to defend their territories. Pairs build open cup-shaped nests from leaves, weeds, grass, rootlets, and hair, on or near the ground. Females incubate the eggs alone and feed the chicks until they fledge, when both parents feed them for around another 17 days.
