The golden-winged warbler is a small, but stunning songbird. It has bright patches of yellow on the crown and wings which contrast against its solid gray feathers. There are black patches on the throat and face which are very much like the chickadee's.
Habitat and Habits
Golden-winged warblers occupy overgrown pastures, brushy habitats in early succession, and briery woodland borders.
Reproduction and Care of the Young
Golden-winged warblers' nests are built on or near the ground in dense herbaceous cover. They usually build their nests out of dead leaves and plant fibers. Eggs are usually laid between the end of May through the end of June.
