February 4, 2017 – Dartford Warbler (Sylvia undata)

Requested by: @gepwin

Found in western and southern Europe and northwestern Africa, these warblers do not migrate in much of their range, making them vulnerable to hard winters in some areas. They eat mostly invertebrates, including caterpillars, butterflies, beetles, and spiders. Their cup-shaped nests are constructed near the ground in bushes. Both parents feed the chicks. They are classified as Near Threatened by the IUCN due to habitat destruction and severe winters.
