Nashville Warbler, Yuma, AZ

Nashville Warbler, Yuma, AZ
Nashville Warblers pass through our area in the early spring (usually gone by the end of April) and then again in fall (usually September).  Like other warblers, they prefer insects, and will feed on flowering trees that attract the same.  It rarely spends the winter, but be careful not to confuse it with Orange-crowned Warbler.  Look for them in riparian growth and yards, especially blooming Palo Verde trees.
