BIRD OF THE WEEK:

PRAIRIE WARBLER

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Setophaga discolor
POPULATION: 3.5 million
TREND: Declining
HABITAT: Breeds in early successional habitats in the eastern U.S.; winters in south Florida and the Caribbean

Contrary to its name, the Prairie Warbler is a bird of scrubby fields, clearcuts, and open woods, where it can be located by its buzzy, ascending song, tail-pumping habit, and black-streaked yellow plumage. This species has a bold facial pattern that gives it a “spectacled” appearance.
