BIRD OF THE WEEK
SCIENTIFIC NAME: Geothlypis formosa
POPULATION: 2.5 million
HABITAT: Breeds in deciduous woods with thick understory; winters in lowland and foothill forests.
A patient observer may eventually track the song to its source: a long-legged, short-tailed bird colored olive-green above and bright lemon-yellow below, with a distinctive black facial pattern that makes the bird look like it has sideburns.
During its breeding season, the Kentucky Warbler can be found in deep, deciduous forests in the East, with populations, overall, denser and more widespread west of the Appalachians. This skulking species requires forest with a dense understory, usually close to water such as creeks, rivers, and swamps. It seeks similar lowland and lower foothill forest habitat on its wintering grounds in Mexico, Central America, and extending as far south as Venezuela and Colombia.
