More Worm-eating Warbler Songs

Spring Arrival

 Worm-eating Warblers returned to Westchester County, NY by May 1, 2011.  This male is establishing a territory, singing regularly between other normal activities.  He stops to forage for insects in the tree flowers, and scratches his head a bit. 
Note the black stripes on his crown, and his insect-like song.
The song of the Worm-eating Warbler can sometimes be confused with songs of other birds, including Pine and Palm Warblers, and Chipping Sparrows.  Watch for more songs to help distinguish these species.
