PIC OF THE WEEK: 05/02/16 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2016 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA
Notes: This appropriately named member of the Warbler family is an especially striking little bird to have seen at such close range. It stair-stepped downward from the upper canopy of the tall White Oak overhead, heading toward The Bird Spa birdbath. This eye level image was captured on its descent as it momentarily paused on a nearby perch. Then it flew down to an even lower branch before it dropped to the water for a quick bath. This was the third visit of this species this spring, so far. We typically see and hear one or two each year. The Black and White is one of the Warblers that breeds in eastern, as well as northern, North America, including Virginia. They build a small cup shaped nest on the ground, usually at the base of a tree, and lay about four or five eggs. A slightly down-curved bill makes a good tool for extracting insects and spiders hidden in the tree bark. So they are only here during migration and the warmer months, when the insects thrive in deciduous woodlands. They forage for food much like a Nuthatch, often creeping head-first down and then back up the tree trunks and branches. What a delight to have these medium sized Warblers visit on their way to their breeding grounds each spring.
