Ovenbird

ABA 1

(Seiurus aurocapilla - formerly Seiurus aurocapillus)

Ovenbird has a very loud song emanating from the woodland floor, “teach-ER, teach-ER, teach-ER,” with accent on second syllable. Although it will occasionally perch, it is most often seen in the shade on the ground poking slowly amongst leaf litter. It gets its name from the shape of the ground-dwelling nest that it builds.
