Worm-eating Warbler


(Helmitheros vermivorum - formerly Helmitheros vermivorus)

A tan-colored warbler with a black eye line and black head stripes, the Worm-eating Warbler is actually insectivorous just like the rest of the family.  It likes sloped ground within shady woods, and has a very unbirdlike buzzy “song” that sounds more like an insect than a bird.
