Bird Pic Of The Week

Pine Warbler

(Setophaga pinus)

Where: Virginia Beach, VA • False Cape State Park

Notes: With spring's arrival, finally, come the jewels of the forests, the Warblers. This maritime forest on the coastal spit of False Cape is the northern beginning of the Outerbanks. The narrow strip of land is only one mile wide and less at other spots. Years ago it was logged, but it has regrown through natural succession. Just behind the sand dunes, grasses and scrub bushes transition into a mixture of Live Oak and Loblolly Pine groves. During the breeding season, these pine forests provide the ideal habitat for both the Pine and Prairie Warblers (SEE: WeeklyPhotos2010/06-07-10). Several times I saw one of these golden gems pluck and eat a caterpillar that was hidden amongst the long-needled pine's branches. Perhaps they know to look for the tell-tale strands of silk that the larvae leave behind as they crawl along. Any time we were near the pine trees, we could hear the warbling-trill of these little beauties. They seemed on a non-stop mission, pausing only to sing once and a while, as they explored the newly emerging pine sprouts for food.
