Bird Pic Of The Week

Black and White Warbler

(Mniotilta varia)

Where: Kiptopeke, VA • Kiptopeke State Park

Notes: The excitement of fall migration was in the air that late summer day. This Black and White was part of a flock of migrants out on Virginia's Eastern Shore. The nuthatch-like foraging style of this beauty caught my eye as it explored a leafless tree close to the boardwalk trail. It was jumping around, probing between the crevices of the tree bark looking for insects. After studying this photo, I was amazed at this species' short, stout legs and unusually large feet. They use these attributes for clinging to trees, often climbing head first down the trunk. Its bill is also unusually long for a warbler and is well adapted for probing dormant insects hidden deep inbetween cracks in the bark. This foraging adaptation allows this warbler to be among the first to return in the spring, while others delay their arrival until insects become more active as trees bloom and leaves unfurl.
