Townsend’s Warbler

Townsend’s warbler (Setophaga townsendi) is a small songbird of the New World warbler family.

Their breeding habitats are coniferous forests with large trees on the northwestern coast of North America. Birds from Haida Gwaii migrate short distances further south on the Pacific coast. Other birds winter in Mexico, Central America, and the south-western United States.

They forage actively in the higher branches, sometimes hovering or catching insects in flight. They mainly eat insects and spiders and seeds. Outside of the nesting season, these birds forage in mixed flocks. In winter, they also eat berries and plant nectar.
