PIC OF THE WEEK: 05/13/13 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2013 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Blue-winged Warbler

(Vermivora cyanoptera)

Where: Richmond, VA • Glidewell Rd.

Notes: Spring migration seemed to have peaked right in our backyard! Two of these Neotropical migrants were feasting on a smorgasbord of inchworms as they were working the row of Privet Bushes that grows along our property line. The genus Vermivora means "worm-eating." We had heard its characteristic "bee-buzzzz" call around the neighborhood a couple of weeks ago and were quite surprised then. So to find two "Blue-wings" roaming around our backyard was a real treat. Several other species of Warblers were around as well, including: Black-throated Blue, Yellow, Yellow-rumped, Hooded, Blackpoll, Magnolia, plus Northern Parula and Norther Waterthrush! This species is known to hybridize with the Golden-winged Warbler (SEE: Pic of the Week 06-08-09); the result is either the commoner genetically dominant Brewster's Warbler or the rarer recessive Lawrence's Warbler. Once the arrive in their breeding grounds, they will seek out habitat that is open and scrubby. They typically nest in a low bush or on the ground in a clump of grass. At the end of the season the will make the return trek to their wintering grounds in southern Central America.
