March 28, 2017 – Sardinian Warbler (Sylvia melanocephala)

These warblers are found from southern Europe to northern Africa. They eat mostly arthropods, along with some fruit, usually foraging in low vegetation or on the ground. Males perform flight displays while singing during the breeding season. Breeding in monogamous pairs, they often raise two broods per year. Females build the cup-shaped nests from grass hidden in vegetation. Both parents incubate the eggs and care for the chicks.
