Black and White Warbler

I had heard that a bunch of warblers have been passing through the Key on their migration.  I kept an ear and eye out this week hoping to find some in my trees.

To my delight I saw a pair of Black and White Warblers in the Banyan tree out front.  They were scooting all over and around the branches like a nuthatch would. 

I read that the Black-and-white is a winter resident in Florida…a true snow “bird”.  I was glad to have them in my yard.

I like to use the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s All About Birds website for information.  Here’s the link so you can learn more about this little bird: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Black-and-white_Warbler/lifehistory
