July 15, 2017 – Pink-headed Warbler (Ergaticus versicolor)

These warblers are found in mountain pine, cypress, and oak forests in parts of southern Mexico and Guatemala. They eat mostly insects, picking them off of leaves and tree trunks while foraging in the understory. Males keep their territories all year and sing during the breeding season to attract mates. Their domed nests are built on the ground mostly from pine needles and moss and hidden in dense vegetation. Due to habitat loss, degradation, and fragmentation in the cloud forests where they live, they have been classified as Vulnerable by the IUCN.
