Friday's Foto

The subtle and elegant coloration and markings of the Worm-eating Warbler helps this small songbird to blend into the leaf litter and understory of the forest habitats that it prefers. Usually seen probing clusters of dead leaves for insects and caterpillars, they don't actually eat earthworms. Their song is a high-pitched trill that sound much like an insect. This species wide range and apparent increasing populations make it one of the few migrant neotropic songbirds whose conservation status is listed as "Least Concern".
